Griffin Technology has launched two brand-new iPod cases, Centerstage and Disko.
Centerstage (£16.95) is a clear hard shell case that protects your media player from scratch and impact damage - but the product does a little more than that - it also securely stands your iPod at an angle that's comfortable to watch iPod videos at your desk.

The colourful anodised aluminum cover (silver, blue, black, or hot pink) flips open and under to create a sturdy easel stand to achieve that. The case is compatible with 30GB, 60GB and 80GB video iPods.

Griffin's Disko case (£19.95) also offers a little extra twist, it senses your movements and responds with moving coloured lights that outline the click wheel.

Disko's coloured LEDs don't suck your iPod's batteries, they draw power from two, tiny, long-lived wafer batteries (included). This product also works with 30GB, 60GB and 80GB video iPods.

The two cases will be available in time for Christmas from Griffin's UK distributor AM Micro.
