Unlike other waterproof
players that rely on traditional air conduction technologies, the SwiMP3 player
uses bone conduction – the direct transfer of sound vibrations from the cheek
bone to the inner ear – to provide the swimmer with exceptional sound clarity.
The SwiMP3 player is fully waterproof and can be used with all competitive swim
strokes. It holds approximately 30 songs for four hours of continuous music.
We reported in 2003 about a student who had the idea for MP3 swimming googles. Finis now brought such a swim gadget on the market for $249.99. More details on Finis corporate site and press-release (pdf).
Founded in 1993 by Olympic Gold Medalist, Pablo Morales, and John Mix, Finis
develops the most technological and advanced training equipment for the
swimming industry. From competitive swimwear and technical training
equipment to high-end competitive swim goggles and children’s water confidence
products, Finis offers something for swimmers of all abilities to improve their
technique and add to their enjoyment of being in the water.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
