ibanglez turns iPod nano into high fashion
A start up has taken to indiegogo seeking crowd sourced funding for its ibanglez project. A twist on using the iPod nano as a watch, the ibanglez concept gives users the opportunity to blend fashion with technology. It was conceived when the wife of ibanglez creator Dheeraj Mirpuri was unable to find a watch strap for her iPod nano that was also fashionable enough for women.
The ibanglez are made from pure stainless steel and come in two editions. The SPOT ON comes in eight colors including black, blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, & white. This reward price is currently $50 for one SPOT ON (USA & Canada delivery included) and will retail at $69 in the future. The alternative style comes as the MATT GOLD and the MATT SILVER. The reward price is $69 (USA & Canada delivery included) while it is set to retail for $85.
Users can help to fund the project with a donation starting at $5, but also have the option to invest $50 (one SPOT ON), $69 (one MATT Gold or MATT Silver). Options for multiple orders then range up to $500, which will bring a return of 8 SPOT ON iBanglez as well as 2 MATT ibanglez for those with deeper pockets.
