How to copy mp3s to an iPod without a computer?

iPod dreams and hacks. I'm in a band and we'd love to give out "demos" via an iPod at shows. We're envisioning a Device that may exist, may need to be hacked together, or may be fundamentally impossible to create.

The concept... the Device should be a simple, handheld storage device that transfers the contents of its memory to the iPod through the standard 30-pin iPod dock connector
. Thus, we could put our mp3s on people's iPods without having a traditional computer/iTunes interface. We would bring this Device to shows and hand out 21st century demos.
Haven't found anything on Google. The resources I've come across so far indicate that "With the dock connector the iPod can be...connected to a serial device and controlled via the Apple Accessory Protocol
". I don't know how to interpret much of that info, but would be curious to learn how, if it would help us build this mythical Device.
Does this Device exist? Is its existence possible? Any advice on building one? Thanks and let me know if I can provide clarification.
