Auris Bluetooth A2DP receiver hijacks iPod ecosystem

imageWhen using any other OS than the iPhone, the lack of accessories can be extremely annoying, not to mention having so many devices, including even cars, having support for the iPhone built-in, while not supporting anything else.

A Kickstarter project aims to hijack this wide support by selling the Auris, a small A2DP receiver that plugs in and is powered by the iPhone dock, and which can be connected to by any smartphone that supports Bluetooth 2.1.

The Auris team aim to sell the gadget for $40, and are trying to raise $40,000 on Kickstarter for the first run.

Their project is not open yet, but when it does they will certainly get my pledge.

Update:  There is a near identical gadget here which does the same job, for the same price, and already available!  Thanks RonV42 for the tip. Here is another courtesy of Simon, who confirms it works with his windows phone.
