Get Your Butt in Gear: Nike Amp+ Wireless iPod Remote

The Nike Amp+ Wireless iPod Remote is an amazing idea. It works with your Nike+ iPod for your Nano. It's a remote control that's attached to your wrist. So now instead of futzing with your Nano that's wrapped around your arm or stashed in your pocket, you'll be able to change tunes or re-set your work out wirelessly (with Bluetooth).

I love my Nike+ iPod immensely, but I get so frustrated when I want to skip songs - my headphones get unplugged and I end up dropping my poor Nano in the process. Ladies, do you feel my pain?

Help is on the way, well, hopefully. (This hasn't actually been released yet from Nike or Apple, but it somehow sneaked its way into the 2007 Men's Health Tech Guide.)

I can't wait to see it. No word on exactly when we should be seeing this gadget in stores, but it should be running you (ha, no pun intended) around $80 when it does.

Hey, check these out too. They're wireless headphones that work with your iPod Nano and Video. They've got a funny name. They're called iMuffs... http://www.wi-gear.com/products/imuffs/

Nice. They look pretty cool. Butrfly - I worry about losing my Nike+ iPod thingy, so I keep it in a special little jewelry box. Looks like I'll keep the wireless headphones in the same place.

Check this site out. Wireless headphones that can work with your iPod. http://www.the-gadgeteer.com/review/bluetake_i_phono_bt420ex_bluetooth_headphones_review Not sure how well they work, but at least companies are starting to make them...

My man and I were just talking about how they need wireless headphones...but we came to the conclusion that he would just lose them if they didn't have a cord! I still think it's a novel idea for non-absent-minded people!

Can you get wireless headphones too? Now that would be a briliant idea. I'm always getting tangled in the cord when the wind blows...

Hopefully it won't be $80.

if this thing is easy to use it's gonna sell like hotcakes. Especially if it's cheap like the sensor thingy is...
