More iCr@p: The iPond Tortures Goldfish With Your MusicDec 15th, 2007 | By James Lewin | Category: iPod Accessories, iPods & Portable Media Players, Strange
We thought that our 2007 Holiday Guide to iCrap was pretty comprehensive, what with the iPod Tooth Whitener and all.
Well, looks like we were wrong:
The iPond is a tiny fish tank that doubles as a music speaker.
Unfortunately, it’s a tiny fish tank that is about 15 times smaller than the recommended tank size for the fish it holds. The tank’s water capacity is only 650 millilitres once rocks are placed in it.
And the fish get to vibrate along to the music, courtesy of the cheap speaker built into the iPond.
Animal Liberation Victoria’s Noah Mark said he was disgusted by the invention. “The fish in this thing does not look like it has very long to live and it can barely move,” he said. “Even if it does live it’s not [a] life worth living … it’s really just a torture box.”
