This dry-land fish swims to the music of connected, hand-held MP3 or iPod players and has a built-in speaker for operation without a headset. In addition, the unit has multicolored flashing lights and produces sound effects. Even without connecting the I-FISH, its face and tail light up and it wiggles to the beat of music when it is placed in front of a speaker. Depending on the song, the unit displays one of four music-based personalities — for example, country music soothes it. Touching the top of its head triggers a “fish song.” Analog circuitry provides the amplification for the speaker and for powering the array of LED lights.
