iPod? iLego!

My inbox gets lots of press releases every day. Over the years that's built up to just around 40 thousand messages, totalling to just under 2GB of space. I keep an eye out for interesting or unusual releases, and today's most unusual was for a set of iPod speakers shaped like a Lego brick.

Exhibit 1.

Now they may well play music (I'm assuming that's what the wavy blue lines mean, as opposed to a rotting piece of garlic carefully included for your olfactory pleasure) and will probably sound terrible, like most teeny tiny speakers hooked up to an MP3/AAC player (even if it does have Active Bass System, so maybe the wavy lines are rotting fish, not garlic), but the press release missed one vital piece of information:

"Can I build them into a Lego model?"

I don't think there's anything else that really matters.
