We’ve seen accessories from Gear4 in the past and the company is back again with its latest iPhone/iPod dock, the HouseParty AirWave. The device offers access to Internet radio stations and users are able to control the dock over Wi-Fi via an iOS app. Users will be able to search for and tune into Internet, DAB and FM radio stations. One of the more interesting features is that you’ll be able to control a docked iPod/iPhone, though you’ll need to do it via another iOS device. The dock itself offers two three-inch, 20W speakers, a 3.5mm aux input and media streaming support from storage devices. The HouseParty AirWave is already available at GBP150 ($236) in the UK, though there isn’t any indication if it will be arriving stateside anytime soon.
