iHoop Connects Your iPod To A Basketball Hoop
One of my most favorite hobbies in the summer is playing basketball and listening to music on a boombox. One of the reasons why the iPod really took off was because of the whole ecosystem built around it. Spalding has built a basketball hoop where you can connect an iPod directly to it. The audio system made for the iPod has 30 watts of sounds through two 3″ ear-level speakers and a 5″ subwoofer on the base of the hoop.
The speakers are weather-resistant and ithas a suspension cradle. No info on when and where you can buy the iHoop yet, but expect to shell out about $1,300 when it becomes available.
