Presenting my iJack

Howdy folks!

As you know I love music, and I love Halloween. This year I really needed something extra creepy and fun to listen to all my favorite scary movie scores I came up with the "iJack".

Basically I gutted a pumpkin and turned it into an iPod dock. So you "feed" your Ipod to it buy placing it in his mouth, then you can use the remote control to play your music. He's geared with internal speakers and lit with orange LED's. As soon as I get some sort of video camera I'll try and upload a video so you guys know it really works and it's not just a pumpkin full of electronicy looking parts.

Here are a few more photos of the iJack.

Happy Halloween!

alternately you can view these on my flickr stream (I just don't like flickr that much, but here's a link anyway: Flickr)

Thrills! Chill! Madness inducing audio!


We interrupt this blog to bring you a special news bulletin

Reports from Washington have warned us of an approaching radio program that could send our community into fits of fear induced insanity! Lock your doors! Hide your children! Wear some diapers! At its current speed, scientists predict it could be in your area on MONDAY OCTOBER 26th AT 8PM - 10PM! Research also supports that listening to the full 2 hours could melt your brain!

Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes... The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

BEWARE! It's coming, and cannot be stopped!
