Henry Johnstone, Sydney - Australia - on 15/5/12
It's often a hard slog for Gen Y to fend off the massive sweeping generalisations made by Baby Boomers and Gen X'ers over their apparent obsession with and over-reliance on media and technology. However as the Sydney Morning Herald points out, this guy has pretty much screwed any kind of rebuttal they ever had.
Professional body piercer Dave Hurban, 21, who works in a tattoo parlor in New Jersey, has implanted four metal studs in the skin of his wrist and secured his iPod to them magnetically.
"I just invented the strapless watch," Hurban has said of his iPod, set to display a clock.
He managed to attach the device to his wrist by mapping out the four corners of the iPod on his arm and then inserting four titanium studs into his skin. Once the incisions healed, he popped on his iPod, which held in place magnetically.
"It's way simpler than you think it is," he said, and has posted a 'how to' video on YouTube, which has received 900,000 views in two weeks.
Hurban said the watch was big hit at a tattoo convention in Baltimore last weekend.
"I must have talked to like 400 people individually,' he said. "Every person I showed, they were like so amazed."
