Christmas decorations these days are so boring. Everyone’s house looks the same – tree in the corner, wreath on the door and cards up on the mantelpiece. Why not buck the festive trend and go for something a bit different?In yet another strange twist on the iPod dock genre, IXOS has integrated a set of flashing LEDs into this cube-shaped speaker. It’s compatible with all 3G to 5.5G iPods and will fire sound out through its illuminated sides. Low-end bass is dealt with by a 3W sub while a 3.5mm jack input also caters for non-Apple aficionados.Perfect for Christmas night fever, night fever.
