Where will they hide an iPod next? The nekFIT wants to tuck it behind your neck for safe keeping.
Designed for those that like to exercise, the nekFIT only works with the iPod nano or shuffle. That makes sense, because you don’t need to strap any large weights to your neck, unless you’re looking for big, beefy muscles in that area.
For $34, it does keep the wires nice and neat. However, my neck gets sweaty enough without strapping any electronics to it. The company says it’s also easy to control, but trying to peek at songs could send you in circles like a dog chasing its tail.
To see how it works and looks, check out the slideshow, or you can watch the company’s super-quick infomercial on their website.
