Is That An iPod On Your Belt-Buckle Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Okay, check this website out and let the commenting begin. I knew it was just a matter of time before we started wearing all of our lil' techno-gadgets.

Dude, where are the Cell-Phone Baseball Caps and the Play Station Portable Wristbands?

Heck . . . for that matter, what about locking the design team geeks down in the sub-basement without any porn or oreos until they are finally able to come up with something really useful . . . like a combination money clip/thong/keychain-holder.

Now that would ruffle a few feathers at next year's "Invento-Fest Convention" in downtown Cincinnati. The best part is that you'll never have to worry about losing your car keys again, because they are conveniently wedged up where the sun doesn't shine, providing for a constant reminder each and every time you go to sit down.

Pure Genius!

BTW - I love the 3rd comment down on the "Tunebuckle" page that spells out exactly how to make it big.

It does look kind of good though, and I don't even have an iPod. Of course, that's before half the world's population starts wearing it - I tire very quickly. Plus she would probably make that cell-phone baseball cap look good too...

Well, ok then. I am sure most of the guys who looked at that pic asked "I-pod, what i-pod?

Anne - I agree that it actually looks sort of cool. Hey, I say bring on the heady days of Star Trek where we can tap our pectoral muscle above the heart and speak to anyone we want anywhere on the mothership.

Scotty - Beam Me Up Already!

Buddess - I was pushing the tenuous boundaries of acceptable material, I know. :)

I get a kick out of the thoughts people have though. One dude was all worried about smashing his delicate lil' iPod up against the urinal. DUDE . . . you have two hands, yes?

Hey Ben O.

I hope that all is well.

"The Apprentice" once had a challenge where the teams were tasked to design fashionable clothing that incorporates current technology...(I don't think they thought of the nude female midriff idea to sell the products though).

Given the recent obesity statistics, I'm not sure what percentage of the population would benefit from such a product...or even be able to pull that look off...

A very thought-provoking post!

Anyway, that's all I've got for now.

Take care out there!

Your Pal,
