As you probably know, rocking chairs are quite comfortable chairs to sit and chill in. You might not have considered a rocking chair to be a gadget for music lovers, but wait until you read about the iRock!
Basically, the iRock rocking chair is a hand-built product made from pinewood that is yet to be in full-scale production, but essentially anyone that sits in the iRock with an iPad or iPhone will be able to charge their device whilst rocking their chair. A full hour’s worth of rocking will apparently recharge an iPad to about 35% capacity.
It also features two 25w speakers located at the top of the chair (at either end), and will be available in five different colours.

Recognised as a design classic, the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus speakers are some of the most technologically advanced and innovative speakers you are likely to ever come across.
The result of five years of research and development, the Nautilus is recognised worldwide as an outstanding loudspeaker that continues to shape the direction of the audio industry to this day. The tapered tubes that house the tweeters help to absorb sound waves, and the tweeters themselves are made from aluminium – a material that helps it to be lightweight and yet rigid at the same time.
