The award for ridiculous iPod docks clearly belongs to Jarre Technologies' 3m tall AreoDreamOne. Let's forget for a moment that you have a 3m speaker in your house that looks like a heat lamp outside of a restaurant. The dock requires you to climb a built-in ladder to plug in your iOS device.
Need to check an incoming email or answer a call? No problem! Just shimmy up the metal ladder to check your iPhone. Ridiculous.
The 400kg dock pushes 10,000 watts of sound to its five speakers and includes a USB, 1/4-inch, and two XLR inputs to connect the other audio components in your home to this monstrosity.
There's currently a six-month waiting list, and you'll get your choice of black, white or chrome if you're willing to fork over the $US550,000. It seems pricey, but don't forget, you also get a ladder perfect for changing lightbulbs. Value! [Jarre via Newlaunches]
