Jean-Michel Jarre – Rendez-Vous iPod

It’s has been a while since I’ve seen anything regarding Jean-Michel Jarre – perhaps ‘Destination Docklands’ was the last time.

This time it has nothing to do with his synth pop spectaculars as it turns out that he’s a bit of a gadget designer too! He also happens to be a bit fussy bout the output from his iPod.

So he’s gone and designed the AeroSystem iPod speaker.

Typically understated (arf!) he’s knocked together quite an imposing metal and glass tower that houses 2x 20W speakers and 45W subwoofer for blasting out that laser-synth music of his.  The remote is also a work of gadgety art in itself.

Of course it also charges your player and does have connectivity for other players – I’m guessing that these will require another stand/shelf.

450 Euros is the asking price and it is only available to rich French residents.
