We’re pickin’ up good vibrations—and that includes the song, too. The latest iLuv product, the iMM155 Vibro II, allows you to wake up with an alarm you can hear and feel.
Because the Vibro II is a docking station, it allows you to park your iPhone or iPod and wake up with music of your choice. If you prefer a little chat in the AM, the unit also has an FM radio.
The real perk, though, is the Shaker feature. This unique aspect adds a bit of motion into your wake-up call. Place the Shaker under a pillow and the device’s rhythmic vibrations are guaranteed to wake even the heaviest sleeper or the hearing impaired. That feature can be used alone or combined with music.
Other features include patent-pending jAura sound, a large LCD display with 10 brightness level adjustments, and Time Sync for your iPhone/iPod.
Available in four colors, the iLuv iMM155 is the perfect bedside buddy. However, because it doubles as a dock, it also works well in the kitchen, the garage, the home office, or all three. Expect the iMM155 Vibro II to start selling next month, with an MSRP of $69.99.
