Keep Your Powder And Your iPod® Dry!

If there were two favorite gadgets loved by product designers this past two years, it was the USB port and the iPod. Don't get me wrong, I love my port (preferably not too sweet) and don't remember life without my iPod, but jeez, do I really need a farting plastic dog or a bookcase holder for my iPod?

This time, I've fallen for an iPod gadget though. If you enjoy exercise in the cold and snow, you'll like it too. It's a pair of ski gloves with a joy stick on the outside so you can operate your iPod without having to remove your gloves. It's so easy to use, you don't have to stop mid-ski or mid-walk to fast forward to a new track.

 

The joy stick is a radio frequency device. Just plug the RF receiver into your iPod and the joy stick works for up to 60 feet from the iPod. Now why your glove would be 60 feet from your iPod, I don't have the foggiest, but...

The gloves are no slouch either; otherwise why bother with the iPod joy stick? The gloves are fully insulated, have a moisture proof lining, pigskin fingertips, and an abrasion-resistant nylon shell. The elastic cinch cords keep out the snow and ice.

The iPod® Controlling Ski Gloves are compatible with 4th and 5th generation iPod, 1st and 2nd generation Nano, and iPod Mini.
