Griffin's iPod Nano Slap Bracelet Has the Early '90s Totally Confused

What's that, 2010? I mean, no, I'm not at all surprised that the slap bracelet is still around, but you say that there's a miniature computer attached to the thing? That's nuts! Does it run CompuServe?


Now let's see what's going on here. Griffin's combined cutting edge silly—a silver dollar sized MP3 player with a comically small touch screen—with retro silly—an accessory you put on by whacking yourself with it—to come up with the retro-future silly: a slap bracelet watchband for the new iPod Nano. They call it Slap. Like what your girlfriend would try to do to you if you gave her one of these as a gift, or what I did to my knee after I saw the announcement for this product.

OK, that's being unfair. The iPod Nano Watch has been an idea we've all loved to make fun of but also secretly kind of actually just loved since the tiny new Nano was debuted in September. And as far as Nano watch bands go, this looks to be the slickest one yet.

They're available in Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Black, Orange, Yellow, and Pink and run $25 (£20 in the UK). I'd buy one but I'm already using my Nano as a slammer for my Pogs. [Griffin]

From the makers of Slap Chop, comes the Slap Bracelet

Hey guys, Vince here, while you were busy cooking gourmet meals with your Slap Chop and Graty, I was stuck in a 23 hour lock down prison. Upon posting bail I had to take the first job offered to me, and that was the Slap Bracelet.

The Slap Bracelet is perfect for every occasion:

Going to a funeral? Slap it on.

Burying your dead dog in the back yard? Slap it on.

Beating the living daylights out of a hooker for savagely ripping your tongue out? Slap it on.
