The Miuro has an iPod dock and is actually following you around in the house making sure you always hear the sound track of your life.
You also can control Miuro with a remote to have it roll to a specific place with its 2 wheels (similar to a Segway). You could for instance sneak Miuro next to your sleeping girlfriend/wife and then turn up the volume to max and wake her with her favorite song - she sure will love you for it.
The ZMP Miuro measures 350x22mm and weighs 5kg. It can drive around for 3-4hours on a single battery charge. The sound should be pretty good with the 4ch digitalpower amplifier and multi-channel drive the Miuro comes with. With the Wi-fi connection you can stream music from a PC.
AudioCubes sells the ZMP Miuro for $999, which is about $100 premium to what the Miuro sells for in Japan.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
