Macworld writer Dan Frakes was vacationing with his family on Kauai last week, and strolled into the gift shop at Kokee Lodge. Nestled among the usual “Hawaii-themed souvenirs, tchotchkes, and crafts,” however, he spotted a miniature beach chair. Just the right size to give your iPod or iPhone a cozy perch. Frakes notes:
The chairs are functional, as well: the bottom of each chair’s seat has a small opening for Apple’s dock-connector cable, so you can actually charge and sync your iPod or iPhone while it’s relaxing.
Tragically, while he was amused by them, he didn’t buy one… a decision he now regrets.
It looks like you can buy at least one other Hawaii-themed cell phone beach chair online (depicted holding such old-school artifacts as TV remotes and phone handsets), but the fabric pattern doesn’t seem quite as tropically delicious as the ones Frakes found on the Garden Isle.
