iHome invents collapsible speakers

The iHM77 collapsible speakers from iHome do what their name suggests - they are stereo speakers that can be connected up to iPods, iPhones, notebooks, or any other device with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

But they then collapse when you are ready to head off and want to take them with you.

iHome adds that the speakers feature integrated amplifiers, which are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

The speakers come with a USB charging cable and carrying case.

The iHM77 is priced at $50 and are available in black, but silver and red models are set for release later this month.
