Comments on music, musicians, live shows, etc.

Wednesday, June 25, 2003

As an avid iPod user and swimmer, I've often considered a waterproof MP3 player for the pool. I read about these MP3 goggles on Gizmodo:

The music player is integrated into swimming goggles and uses bone conduction to vibrate music direct to the skull. The sound quality is actually better than in a normal environment because there is no background noise.

Bone conduction? Does anyone else find that a little...yecch. I can see the headline in five years: 'Sound Waves from Goggles Cause Skull Cancer".

They haven't got a name for this product yet. Let's see...

  • SwimRock
  • PoolPop
  • Nager-Musique

I got nothing.
