CES 2013: iLuv booth tour
I tote around a handy iLuv USB hub with built-in Ethernet, but the company makes a ton of accessories. Docks, cases, speakers and more can be had from iLuv, and there are a few new items of note from CES 2013 to show you.
First, the Aud 5 Speaker Dock is now equipped with a Lightning connection for your new iDevices. No word on price yet, but it'll be available in May.
The MobiCup is a Bluetooth speaker in cup shape with convenient controls on the top of the speaker, splash-resistant for outdoor activities. It isn't waterproof, but would work great sitting by the pool or in your beer helmet. No price yet.
The MobiOut is another splash-proof speaker, has some good bass to it, and is available for US$129.99.
This item isn't new, but I hadn't noticed it before, and I think it's cool. The aptly-named Camera Case makes your iPhone look like an old SLR camera in a leather case. It's classy and retro and is perhaps a bit of a novelty. Still, for just under $40 it's a pretty stylish case for those inclined to look different. If you want a case that adds a grip, SnapGrip (not from iLuv) has you covered.
Not pictured: the MultiCharge-X, a box that can store 10 iPads and charge them at once, great for schools and businesses. It'll be available in Q2 for $799.99.
