iWatch

When Apple demoed the new iPod nano last week, I mentioned on twitter about how much I liked the look of its clock. It’s more thoughtfully designed and better crafted than most watches.

Well, some wags have taken the obvious step by throwing a strap on the Nano and making it into a proper watch.

One thing Apple left off the new Nano with the redesign is the previous iteration’s video camera. Is it so strange to imagine that a future redesign of the new Nano will re-add this feature? A front-facing camera with FaceTime? Suddenly we’re wearing video phones on our wrists.

Oh shit! We’re in the future.
