You probably heard about Apples big announcement this week of the video iPod.

As expected, the new device is sleek, sexy and bound to be a best seller. But it leaves you asking the question, what next from Apple?

Well, BT Laboratories has the answer: Musical Boobs.

That's right. It turns out the silicon in breast implants might just be the perfect medium for flexible electronic chips capable of storing your iTunes library. One boob would hold the mp3 files while the would have the playback software.
BT Laboratories' analyst Ian Pearson said flexible plastic electronics would sit inside the breast. A signal would be relayed to headphones, while the device would be controlled by Bluetooth using a panel on the wrist.

Technology blog Techdirt has coined the term “Breast iMplants”, although according to Pearson, the technology is still 15 years away.

But I already have some ideas for the "user interface" that I’d like to try out. Any volunteers?

PS-Thanks to Meleah for the tip.

  1. That just ain't right. However, the idea appears ripe with potential for puns.



Your turn to riff...
