MP3 Player for Swimming: Bone-Conducting Finis SwiMP3
 
 

Finis a manufacturer of competitive swim equipment, introduces the world's first waterproof bone-conducting MP3 Player.

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).

About the Geek Mind

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.
