The wild popularity of iPods has given birth to an entire industry of specialized carrying cases built around the trendy media players. Today Scosche Industries, makers of the tapSTICK iPod shuffle protective case, announced that they've been designated an honoree for the 2010 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award. I'm pretty sure this means they make one hell of an iPod shuffle case. Scotsche will be showing their new product off at next years CES show.

They'll be set up in the iLounge Pavilion, which is where all manner of 3rd party Apple peripheral manufacturers will be setting up their wears. The tapSTICK itself is a polycarbonate case which allows users to play, pause, adjust volume, skip tracks, and navigate using the VoiceOver feature. Both this product, and a bevy of other Scosche "made for iPod" and iPhone products will be on display this year.

If you want, you can pick up a tapSTICK now for $29.99 at all Apple retail outlets. The product comes in black or white and ships with a 3 foot long audio cable. Sure, iPod case news is probably the least exciting thing about CES, but that's not going to stop you shuffle-owners from buying this stuff. Without its case, my iPod would have broken years ago.
