Griffin Technology Inc., innovator of exciting hardware and software products for the Mac and iPod, today announced the Griffin iBeam Flashlight and Laser Pointer for iPods. The iBeam package consists of two separate devices. The first is a snap-on flashlight great for finding keys in the dark. The other is a class III laser pointer handy for iPod-friendly presentations and other, less professional pursuits. Both units come with a snap-on protective cap that can be attached to any keychain for convenient portability and accessibility. The iBeam lights are intended for intermittent use when they connect to the top of the iPod in place of the iPod’s headphones. The new Griffin iBeam package cost $19.99 and will begin shipping by the end of October.

Following the recently announced Griffin EarJams and PodPod, the Griffin iBeam represents a new category of iPod accessories that are fun, functional and easy on the pocket. The iBeam flashlight is surprisingly functional when a quick beam of light is required in a dark car or doorstep. The iBeam laser pointer is an amazingly powerful red laser beam that is capable of being seen over a quarter of a mile away. The iBeam package makes a great gift for iPod owning friends and is simply a fun new way to use the iPod.

“This iBeam package is a great new toy for iPod owners everywhere,” said Andrew Green, VP Marketing & Design at Griffin. “Everyone I know has used their iPod’s backlight to find their keys in the dark. So the iBeam flashlight is that seemingly silly idea – that you’ll end up using every day.”
