Implanted Magnets to Keep Your iPod Close
May 20th 2012

Body-mod enthusiast David Hurban has decided to make a lifelong commitment to his iPod Nano. By implanting magnets in his wrist, Hurban has created a permanent bracket to hold his device. Of course, as some wise Youtubers have pointed out, there might be a problem if the next iPod comes in a different size. Want ideas for your own Apple-branded self-surgery? Watch the video of Hurban's process here.

Magnets and Ferrites are often a relatively low cost part of a great many pieces of equipment but their importance is extremely high.
Think this is a bit extreme though. He will be annoyed when apple change the form and material of the nano!

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
