iHoop Connects Your iPod To A Basketball Hoop

Posted Mar 26, 2009

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.
