It gives a completely new meaning to the phrase 'rock 'n' roll'. For boffins have invented a cutting-edge gadget combining a portable music player and a toilet paper dispenser.
The state-of-the-art device - called an iCarta - makes it easier for people to listen to beats while using the bathroom.
It is designed, according to the US manufacturers, to "enhance your experience in the smallest room".
The gadget, which costs around $99, or £54, merges an iPod docking station with a loo roll dispenser.
After music lovers have downloaded songs from the internet on their iPod, they can place it in a socket in the top of the dispenser.
Then while sitting on the toilet, using the shower or luxuriating in a bubble bath, they can listen to their favourite tunes.
The device delivers high-quality sounds from moisture-resistant speakers, according to the manufacturer Atech Flash Technology.
It also re-charges the iPod while playing songs - either pre-programmed or a random selection.

bathroom accessories ping :-)
News. Is this news or a product advertisement?
"Is this news" - Genius, that's why I placed this in the chat section, and not "Breaking News". This story is featured on drudge right now.

Pretty sure this is posted with the intent to laugh at a goofy iPod accessory.
Sheesh, maybe I should have used a sarcasm tag on my post... chill out. ;)
I know, forgot the /sarcasm tag...
My grandparents had an older version of that. I'm guessing it was from back in the 30's or 40's. Every time you pulled on the paper, it would play a little ditty that could be heard all over the house. Of course, everyone laughed when you came out of the bathroom. Sorry, but that's one thing that won't be on my wish list.
I heard it on the radio news earlier today.
This solves that little problem of what to buy the kids for the Fourth of July...
The iAccessories are becoming parodies of themselves... It is almost impossible to create a satiric look at the iPod and its accessories because your parody is likely to already be an actual product!
sheesh, sounds like apple is trying to find a way to keep their users from flushing the ipods down the toilet! :)
Changes the meaning of the phase, "I pood!"
Well, it's not working:
Thanks for the ping! iPoo...therefore iPod?
