Dancing Obama iPod speaker dock

If the traditional dull iPod docks don't inspire you, you may soon be able to get a dock with an animated sculpture of the 44th president, who can boogie along with your music.

Unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Obama dock comes from Ozaki, a company that also offers iPod docks with animated pandas, lions, frogs, pink bears and dogs.

The Obama iPod speaker dock includes a radio, alarm and speakers. Suggested retail price is $99. We don't know when it will be available.

If there isn’t music playing to motivate the Obama doll to shake his booty, a microphone picks up ambient sound, and Li'l Barack will start dancing. The demo model had a “Change” shirt and played a video of, a noted Obama supporter.

We don't know if Ozaki was working on a McCain or Palin dock, just in case. (photo % info from The Wall Street Journal)
