Man implants iPod docking station in his arm
Some do-it-yourself projects involve running speaker wiring through the walls, or adding a built-in dock to your desk. One man, however, had decided to implant an iPod dock in his arm.
In a video that’s going viral (viewer discretion advised!), Dave Hurban “modifies” his arm so that he can wear the iPod nano as a watch, and not have to wear a wristband.
Body modification is exactly as it sounds – changing a human body with, well, stuff. In this case, it appears Hurban made four tiny cuts, and then inserted four tiny magnets.
After some patience, some pain and obviously some blood, he clips the iPod nano to his wrist.
The wristband is no longer a nuisance. Who knew it was in the first place?
In any case, Digital Trends was able to ask him why he did such a thing. The answer? “I just thought it would be cool.”
There’s no word on what he plans to do if Apple phases out the iPod, as sales of the music-only device have been sinking.
Would you do something like this?
