Tattoo artist and technology lover Dave Hurban has created the iDermal, which allows you to forgo those annoying wrist straps and permanently affix your iPod to your wrist via magnetic implants. Dave says the magnets are strong enough to keep the iPod in place during a run or work-out at the gym. It can also be used to hold other devices, such as watches, in place.
While the hi-tech body modification procedure is fascinating to some, others are somewhat disturbed. Either way, I think it is interesting to see a piercing that goes beyond aesthetics to meet function.
Watch the video below to see Dave perform the procedure on himself – but only if you’re okay with seeing blood and needles.
