The apple Ipod Itrip FM transmiter is very weak. It's not powerful enough to be useful in a car, where it is geared towards. By adding a bigger antena you can effectively increase the signal strength.
The project combines an Apple iPod with a T+A-hifi stereo system (R-system). The iPod can be plugged into the stereo system and does not only deliver the Audio-signal to the T+A-system but is also remote controllable with the T+A remotecontrol without an own infrared receiver.
While I love my Playstation Portable as a both a game machine and portable media device, one of the biggest limiations is the fact you're limited to the storage on the memory stick. Even with a 1GB stick, after you drop on a movie or two, you're really limited in what you can store on it compared to an iPod.
I found a tutorial online which explained how to increase the iTrip's range simply by taking the antenna out of the case. I used the same basic method as with the old iTrip, with a few small changes. Now that I have done this, my iTrip is much better. It rarely has any static, and I can have it up to 50 feet away from my home stereo.

Here is a guy that connected a handcharger to his ipod. He decided to attach the charger to a bike dyno, so he could power his iPod while riding his bike.
Power can be useful when you need to run other small low power devices in conjunction with the Nano. These devices can be small circuits, lights, etc. We will use the power we draw to power a glowing sleeve for the iPod Nano.
The combination of a touch screen mounted on an LCD creates a highly adaptable user interface that can be used for just about anything. Our initial concept called for the use of both the Palm m125 touch screen and LCD as this is the ideal combination as they have been designed to work together and are professionally packaged.
