    Default Here's The Latest Modified... “Eye Pod”


    No one has discussed or even looked at this thing without using the word “gross” as a descriptive pejorative to summarize the look and feel of this… contraption. But since it really is a modified iPod, perhaps it warrants some attention.

    But I’ll make it quick.

    What we have here, according to Technabob, is a creation that comes to us via “Dr Grymm.” And, as you can clearly see, it doesn’t look anything like the relatively sane iPods we’re used to enjoying. But there is, indeed, an iPod Nano at the core of this monstrosity.

    “A custom mod of an Apple iPod Nano 1st Gen. The design is inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The “eye-Pod” can be worn on the wrist via the leather cuff, or placed on it’s custom Victrola base. All functionality of the iPod remain intact and a hidden USB cord retracts from the base to either a wall charger or your computer. There are hidden pressure plates that when touched send a strobing “static charge” into the quartz crystals on either side of the magnified veiwing portal. Music can be heard either through the Victrola horn or though a portable personal hearing apparatus.”
    A disgusting-looking blob, this modified iPod still works like a charm. And although we’re closer to Valentine’s Day than we are to Halloween, I don’t think there will be any great demand for this particular “work of art” no matter the season.

    Yeah, you'll be the coolest person in the room when you pull one out and show it around, but that gets old fast when three other people have them and one person somehow has one that glows in the dark.
