iPod Nano watch
Take one beautifully designed and functional iPod Nano, add some thought, more great design and a plea online to fund the project and you get this …
The TikTok and LunaTik Multi touch watch kits!
TikTok and LunaTik simply transform the iPod Nano into the world’s coolest multi-touch watches. The idea to use the Nano as a watch was an obvious one ever since the product was announced. But we wanted to create a collection that was well designed, engineered and manufactured from premium materials and that complemented the impeccable quality of Apple products. Not just clipped on a cheap strap as an afterthought. We wanted to create a product that your friends and strangers would stop you and ask “WTF is that??? And where can I get one?!”
The really amazing thing about this is that the products them selves are not in production yet. KickStarter (link here) has been used to fund the project.
Initially Scott Wilson was looking for $15000 to get this off the ground. Well, it’s off the ground and about to enter space – how about a cool $500,000 + funding from people (like me) who have pledged money.
A project that began with an iPod Nano and an experimental wristwatch design has quickly exploded online, receiving over $540,000 in funding through Kickstarter, a Web site that helps people find support for projects.
The project was created by the Chicago-based design firm Minimal, which wants to take the iPod Nano, Apple’s latest tiny multitouch iPod, and incorporate it into a wristwatch. Those who pledge $25 to the project will receive a Nano-holding watch kit when it is produced.
Scott Wilson, founder of Minimal, said his company had been astonished by the response to the idea.
Now I’m off the fence and have pledged my $65 for the LunaTik. Now I just need to buy the iPod Nano! I’m really pleased it has been such a success for them and I cannot wait to receive mine.
