Musician and entrepreneur Jean Michel Jarre has just introduced the AeroDream One dock for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. What’s most notable about this dock, however, is its size – it’s 11 feet tall!
This marvel of design and technology combines an iDevice dock with a substantial 10,000W stereo system, all designed in the shape of a stylish modern pillar. The dock stands 11 feet tall, weighs a whopping 871 pounds, and has a diameter of 16.3 inches.
Also important is the fact that the dock includes a built-in ladder so you can easily reach the top of the pillar to plug in your iDevice and crank out your tunes in a truly serious way. You may have difficulty controlling your iDevice from the couch using this dock, however. Just sayin’.
The dock can also accept audio input from other devices using a stero minijack, XLR line level inputs, or a USB port. The dock will sell for more than the cost of most houses at €399,000 (about $565,000 USD).
I can just imagine building an incredible mansion in which this beauty rises from the floor every time I want to play some tunes. Ooooh yeah. For those who dont have a spare half-million dollars or more, Jarre also offers the AeroSystem One, a smaller version of the same design for €799.00 (about $1122 USD).
