This device, called the iCylinder, is easily constructed and is similar to the iHome. This inctructable will show you how to make your own iCylinder. Because of budget, i could only get a basic digital clock, but you could use an alarm/clock/radio if you want to. Feel free to change things a bit to your liking, just make sure everything will work together. I take no responsibility for anything bad happening to your ipod/mp3 player. This project uses wall electricity, and you will be hacking an extension cord, so be carefull, and dont shock your friends for fun, as they will leave an never return.
I take no responsibility for electric shock or fire, which can result in injury or death, so be careful. I’m not trying to discourage you, i just dont want to get sued in the unlikely occasion. if you are unsure of if your iCylinder is safe or not, ask someone who knows some stuff about electricity.
