A $30 Alternative To An iPod

These days, one can find a number of ways to enjoy his music. He can listen on his trendy new iPod nano or stream from his smartphone, for example. Even though iPod nano’s are a bit costly for what you get, there might be a solution to your woes. How would you like a device which is of iPod nano’s size but it is a music player, an e-reader and a watch, all-in-one?

This cool watch-o-music player is called Timesnap. The gadget can be tied on your wrist. It’s basic feature is playing MP3 and MP4 music.

I am hoping that people won’t use it too late, such as right after getting pulled over, but hopefully the provided instruction manual can drop a few clues. The watch has a weird binary looking way of telling time, which will take some getting used to.

Wind-Powered Watch, Eh? Count Me In!

While most watches require a battery to operate, this one won’t require you to visit the repairman anytime soon! The watch pictured on the left was designed by Julien Moise and operates solely on wind power. The watch has a red turbine wheel that encircles the watch’s dial. When the wearer wants to check the time, he or she will simply blow on the turbine, allowing the watch to generate enough power to display the time on a digital screen.

Aircell Announces New Android Airphone

Aircell, an in-flight communications provider, will be releasing an in-cabin, Android-based handset in late 2011. The airphone will target business users who like the option of staying connected. Aircell claims that their airphone will offer better sound quality than your typical land-line or land-based mobile phone.
