Stick Your Nano to Yourself, but Good, With the Istik

by Karen M.

The iStik is a gadget that uses strong magnets to stick your iPod to your clothing, because everyone knows that in this fast-paced world of ours, clips and armbands are just not cutting it.

The iStik is described as having eight “high tech, Neodynium magnets which create an extreme magnetic attraction.” There are versions available only for the 2nd and 3rd generation iPod nano. It appears to have been invented and brought to market by these attractive, well-tanned catalog models.

Here’s a video of a guy doing a bunch of bouncy tricks on a bicycle that is meant to prove that even if your workout includes riding up wooden stairs on a bike, no problem, iStik is there for you. (Since my “workout” usually consists of sitting on the couch while feeling bad about how I’m not working out, I don’t find it particularly relevant, but perhaps you will.)

You can buy one from the iStik website for around $25. I’d also like to mention that iStik is yet another product that uses that age-old naming equation lowercase i + capitalized word with extra consonants removed = gadget you may or may not need. Nice work, guys.

    Just don’t put those powerful Neodynium magnets next to your credit cards or your hard disk based iPod, or you’ll be in a world of hurt!

    Yeah, that doesn’t seem like a good idea at all.

    It’s such a cool case though. It works way better then my belt clippy thing and the armbands don’t ever fit my arms. I agree, don’t put it on your laptop!

    Maybe more people should put their credit cards next to an iStik.

    All kidding aside, I have an iStik and it is very cool. It is rock solid wherever you put it. You don’t have to worry about it sliding. When you bring the case next to the magnetic backing plate it snaps together like a “vault door closing.”

    iStik! The new tool for debt management…

    it is well good, the only thing is that it is quite hard to get it out the case but soon it will be easier, when i have done a few times. the magnets are well strong and will never fall. i recommend it to anyone especially if you go in the gym, cause it is perfect
