Knex Ipod Answered

wouldn't it be cool to have a huge ipod dock made from knex, that looks like a HUGE ipod, also it could be rigged so that when you turn the humongus wheel, the ipod wheel moves! Just like this, but with the Ipod inside!

Well, I just figured out It cant work: Ipod scroll wheels are heat sensitive. A piece of knex rubbing the scroll wheel does not do anything. Sorry!

nor do i, what I mean is that the buttons on the Ipod are not heat sensitive, so you could make a knex ipod remote, witch is like an Ipod shuffle

ok umm, maybe just like the ipod remote, because the buttons are NOT heat sensitive,so al you can do is push the buttons (the wheel would still spin, it just would not do anything)
