Strange but true: Man embeds magnets in skin to hold iPod nano

Dave Hurban has found a new way to wear his iPod nano as a watch

A body-piercing artist has had magnets embedded in his skin to hold his iPod nano.

Dave Hurban decided that wrist straps like this one aren't good enough for his iPod nano, and went one step further by embedding four powerful magnets in his arm to hold the device in place so he can use it as a watch.

It's unfortunate for Hurban that Apple is frequently updating its iPod nano, meaning the next generation may not be compatible with his magnetic wrist (dubbed the iDermal) if Apple makes the iPod smaller or a different shape.

If you so desire, you can watch a video of Hurban installing the magnets at Kaleidoscope Kreative.
