Not content with using a strap, a 21-year-old has had magnets implanted in his wrist to secure his iPod.
The procedure involved implanting four small titanium studs in to the flesh under his skin so that an iPod can be magnetically attached without the need for a wrist strap. Mr Hurban claims that he decided to go ahead with the unusual mechanism because he always wanted a strapless watch and because it would be a world first.
"In today's world, everybody has already done everything twice," he said. "Everyone's looking for the next thing and this is something no one has ever done before."
"Mr Hurban, 21, implanted four small titanium studs into his left wrist and attached four magnets onto the back of his ipod nano, which allows the device to be secured to his wrist without using a strap."
