Forget watch bands, this guy uses magnet implants to carry his iPod

While we’ve seen several watch bands and other accessories made to ensure your iPod nano is with you at all times, we’ve never seen anything like this. Dave Hurban, of Newfield New Jersey carries his iPod with him via magnets in his arm.

That’s right, this Dynasty Tattoo tattoo artist had four powerful magnets implanted into his left arm to hold his late-generation iPod nano in place…


While we have to admit the end-result is sort of cool-looking, we can’t imagine that surgically installing foreign objects into your wrist is a good idea.

Not to mention, as a lot of other sites have pointed out, what is Hurban going to do if Apple changes the Nano’s design next time around?
