Quirky is infamous for offering up gear that really lives up to the company name. Most of the gear isn't stuff you can just order and have show up at your house in a few days. Typically, stuff from Quirky is in the concept stage and the company takes pre-orders until the interest is high enough that the product gets built. The most recent of the products from the company is called the Perch.

The Perch is a docking station for charging your iPhone or other gadgets that also has an integrated wireless speaker. The speaker has Bluetooth connectivity for wirelessly streaming music from any compatible device. The base of the speaker has an alarm clock and can charge just about any USB device there is.

The Perch will work with the iPhone, Android devices, and anything else. The speaker even has a mic built-in to allow for hands free calls. You can pre-order the Perch right now for $179.99 and before the thing goes into production 1600 of them have to sell. So far, only 12 have been spoken for so it may be a long time coming.
