What is TRiK?

Powerful and Stylish

Sony's TRiK™ docking system is a unique, brand new audio enhancement machine capable of transforming your musical world into something you've previously only dreamed of. In the past, musical superiority was relegated only to bland black boxes. Today, with the advent of the TRiK™ , your musical experience can now be far more colorful and far more customized. The cool and interchangeable skins you can download or create yourself make the TRiK™  more than just an iPod-friendly powerhouse. Nay, the TRiK™  is the perfect representation of you and your tastes.

Check out the TRiK™  community group site

Exemplify your skinning superiority. Create a unique, one-of-a-kind skin for the TRiK™ that represents a musical genre of your choice. To participate, download the skin template below and start getting creative.

Making an awesome skin means a potential win (that rhymes), and a win means incredible prizes including your very own TRiK™ and a Sony® Playstation® 3 computer entertainment system (meaning you can listen to awesome music and play awesome video games AT THE SAME TIME).

A winning entry will be visually stunning, so make sure you really bring out your A-game on this one.

See $reiiz's skin example above for inspiration.

I dunno about the rest of you but I think 2nd and 3rd place have the better prizes. I mean seriously who's gonna use a Video Camera as often as a blue ray player or a PS3?

does anyone know why they took down the list of the semifinalist?

who are the 10 alternate semifinalists?
I'd say the judges did a pretty good job picking quality entries of all different styles. Does anyone know what happens with the 10 alternate semifinalists? Will they replace those in the top 25 if there is a problem, or will there be 35 semifinalists total?
K-J-Malings's avatar
I think the 10 alternate semifinalists would have replaced the semifinalist if they didn't upload their file to the ftp sight, or if the file was somehow damaged.

Excellent work all and congrats on being picked! There are a couple in there that I saw before, and I had a feeling that they would get picked. Congrats again!
