Zicplay out to wow with Ewoo wireless iPod remote

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Ziplay Ewoo iPod dock and remote control

Here's Ewoo, the distinctly iPod-like iPod remote control unit from Swiss accessory maker Zicplay. The remote communicates by 2.4GHz radio to the docked iPod, sending commands one way and picking up what's on the iPod to allow you to navigate through songs, pics and videos.

You could just bung a Bluetooth adaptor on the end of your iPod and get the same result - minus the big-screen video playback, of course.

The dock unit sports analogue and digital optical audio connectors and an s-video port to allow it to be hooked up to a TV. It even has a second slot for the remote, which, Zicplay claimed, runs for up to ten days between charges.

The dock also has a USB link, allowing it to be connected to a computer - not only to transfer data from iTunes to the iPod, but also to let you control the jukebox software remotely.

The Ewoo should be available now for $129/€129 in the US and Europe.
