Call me crazy, but I think that’s a pretty cool idea.

Maybe so, but if they had used a redneck with a beer gut for a model, you just might change your mind. wink

I think this is really cool as well—probably for the geek chic ladies—I don’t think i could take a guy seriously wearing this - beergut or not. 

A year of so ago it dawned on me that what makes the iPod so exciting is that the iPod is truly the first wearable computer.  This type of accessory fits perfectly into my thinking.  BRAVO TUNEBUCKLE!

I can hear the lawsuits now… “but officer, I was merely reaching to adjust her iPod”.

How does the user actually see the screen to adjust it?

Nice! It seems one will have to take the dremel to it though, the cutout for the headphones will mean trouble for people with *decdent* headphones.

I’ve seen this in person and the cut-out for the headphones is large. I’ve seen them use a Shure E500 with it.
