Apple's iPod is a culture-changing smash hit product, with millions sold. Unfortunately for hobbyists, tinkerers, and clever geeks, Apple has locked up the iPod tight as a drum: it's not a platform. But in the spirit of great hackers like MacGyver and Heloise, we've unearthed a collection of cool and bizarre iPod tricks that exist somewhere near the intersection of usefulness and fun.

Listen to a standard iPod made to produce a Star Trek-like set of boops, beeps, and blips without headphones or external speakers.

Watch as a volunteer iPod from the audience has its user interface completely transformed and made unrecognizable.

Learn about strange and clever uses for your iPod you hadn't thought of before.

See an array of wacky iPod gadgets that are sometimes useful and always fun.

Join Mac author Scott Knaster for this entertaining excursion to the edges of the iPod.
