I’ve always thought that hardcore Apple fans were so serious about their dedication to the brand that it’s almost like a religion to them. So when I saw these shrines made for the iPad and iPod nano, I thought they were very appropriate.
After Pebble’s resounding success, it was only a matter of time before more inventors would try and get smartwatches made through Kickstarter’s crowdfunding. The Syre is a watch band for your iPod Nano, with the distinct advantage of having Bluetooth neatly integrated.
…then again, that’s like saying people who like permanent tattoos must have not heard of marker pens. Whatever the case, no, you are not on The Onion. Body piercer Dave Hurban really did install four magnets on his wrist, and yes, mounting an iPod Nano on that wrist is one of the reasons (if not the only reason) that led him to do it.
There are quite a few different cases that transform your iPod Nano into a wristwatch, but this is the first one I’ve seen that makes it into a pocket watch. While I don’t use pocket watches, I can see some people liking this kind of setup, since it’s definitely unique.
A nano-sized device should require a nano-sized dock, that’s basically what Gavio decided to do with their new speaker dock, The Pill. It will match your iPod nano (6G) quite well, since it doesn’t take up much space, it’s also easily portable.
Not so long ago Apple issued a recall on every single first generation iPod nano they built. The reason given was that they might overheat. The long and short of it was that the fear was the old things might burst into flames and Apple didn’t want any of that.
With the proper accessory, the latest model of the iPod Nano can be worn on one’s wrist like a watch, but you can’t watch videos on it like you could on the previous generation. If you want to get the best of both worlds, Chinavision has something for you – sort of – in the form of the Timesnap media player watch.
We have seen plenty of watchbands to turn your iPod nano into a wrist watch that you can wear around to show off your geekiness. Most of them are made from silicone like the ones you can pick up at Best Buy from iWatch.
Geeks often like to make fashion statements that show off just how geeky they are. This is the reason for things like the Millenterprise Falcon mashup shirt that gives you +10 geek cred. Another way to show that you are geek is to wear that small 6G iPod nano as a watch.
The iPod Nano’s minimal, tiny form factor has made it the perfect centerpiece for a wristwatch, but its design is also great for other integration opportunities, like this nifty Nano-specific dock that can hang on the wall, plugged directly into an outlet.
Back in November, we mentioned the HEX silicone watchbands that had launched to turn your iPod nano into a geeky wristwatch. Watchbands for this purpose have become very popular since the new nano landed.
We have seen and talked about a bunch of watchbands for the iPod nano and all of them that I can think of have been made of plastic or silicone, and look modern and slick. If you are the emo sort of geek, that just won’t cut it.
Bands that turn a new iPod nano 6G into a watch are getting to be very common. It seems like every time I turn around a new one is on the market. A guy is looking to bring a couple more to market over on KickStarter and his are so much cooler than any of the other bands I have seen.
The Dreamcast’s VMU was a failed experiment. It was a great idea – a storage device that also played games – but in reality it didn’t get enough support from developers. Goteking’s hack on the other hand, was a great success, stuffing the new 6th generation iPod nano into a VMU.
Remember the guy who created those goofy walking iPad and iPhone robots? Well, Terasaki-san is back with a new addition to his i-Family, the iPod nanobot 6G.
By building one of his walking contraptions onto the back of his brand new 6G iPod nano, and giving it a face, he’s created the cutest darned anthropomorphized iPod nano ever.
