Dock-makers, hear ye! Your iPod/iPhone/iWhatever base station doesn't have to look like some boring pair of speakers! In fact, it doesn't have to look like anything worldly at all. The crazy-looking YanTouch Black Diamond transforms tunes into ambient light.

The Black Diamond, available soon for roughly $80, starts as an Epcot-esque black sphere that charges over USB. Pair it with the accompanying apps and it turns into a glowing geodesic mood lamp which, yes, I do believe your room could use.

The company's apparently thinking forward to applications that would put the glowing dome to use—different colors for signifying changes in weather or IDing different callers. I, however, am content to appreciate colorful orbs for colorful orbs' sake. [YanTouch via SlashGear]

These shots don't give a clear idea of where the iPhone actually sits in relation to the glowy thing. Does the iPhone dock into a space *behind* it? Does it slide *into the thing* via a slot at the top?

Take better pictures, product-making dudes!
