iBangle: Fantastic future iPod as self-sizing bracelet

It might take a few years (or decades) for this iBangle design concept to end up on your wrist, but for the time being, we can stare in astonishment at its ambitious design. You see that blue inner band? Push a tiny button on the side and it fills with air, expanding to fit snugly around your wrist.

There's a multi-touch track pad for easy navigation, and the audio finds its way to your ears via a couple of wireless earbuds. Alas, there's no screen, but designer Gopinath Prasana figures you can navigate just fine with an audio-oriented navigation system.

Short of that miraculous mini air compressor, this looks like a player that might be possible, if the buyer doesn't mind paying a pretty penny for a musical bracelet. We'd like to see it shrunk down to the size of a wedding ring, allowing its wearer to express the ultimate in Apple love.
