The popular gaming peripheral maker, Razer, will soon be releasing a keyboard with a built-in iPod dock. It's likely to cost $99 and will have a number of programmable keys and will almost certainly be USB 2.0.
Morer about Keyboard with iPod Dock
It's no secret the Razer has some big plans for the future. In addition to their increasing presence in the gaming mouse market they have a audio equipment and a gaming keyboard on the way. Though these are big moves for a company which has made its name for making nothing except gaming mice, there is more on the way.
Razer Pro|Solutions is an offshoot of Razer which is an attempt to use Razer's design in a professional atmosphere. As it turns out, high-end mice are not only good for gaming, but also for applications like CAD and graphic design. Paint the products a new color, add a new website and, there you go, Razer Pro. In addition to catering to the professional, one look at Razer Pro makes it obvious that these products are for Apple fans as well.

Hand crafted in the USA, this limited edition rubber band machine gun is about as over the top as it gets. Using a mechanism similar to the famous Gatling Gun of the old west, it stands 44 inches from the handle to the tip of its barrels.
The turret spins effortlessly through 360 degrees, and will tilt from 45 degrees up to 22 degrees down, so tracking a fast moving target is a breeze. Winding the handle spins the barrels and fires off the bands, and it has a fire rate of 560 rounds per minute, though you can fire off all 144 rounds in just 12 seconds if the mood takes you. Re-loading takes between 10 to 30 minutes - there's a lot of bands to load.
The gun comes with a free bag of 200 bands, and it's handmade by a good old Texan (of course) out of replenishable poplar pine. Because it's handmade and a limited edition, there are very few of these around (which is probably a good thing!).
You don't strike the keys of the MUSICPOLE like you would a piano, you stroke the keys like a slide guitar player. By sliding your thumb you can create all the different scales.
The 12 musical keys are labelled around the top of the MUSICPOLE. The MUSICPOLE's key's are arranged symmetrically, like the circle of fifths. The MUSICPOLE is a 3 octave keyboard. The keys have the same black and white scheme as piano. All keys are labeled with their proper note names.
The MUSICPOLE's keys are triggered by special "thumbletz" you wear on your thumbs (thumbletz are made out of conductive fabric. They slide like silk over the keys of the MUSICPOLE).
