Underwater MP3 Player

Finis SwiMP3I was scouring on the Internet, looking for information to some of the best MP3 players. I intend to get one which plays MP3 as well as FM radio. On top of that, I needed some 1-2GB of storage space (both for music and data).

While I was browsing around, I bumped into Finis’ SwiMP3 product. Built for the swimmer or snorkeller, you will be able to observe that the player is located at the back of your head instead of dangling at your waist. There is no earplugs or earphones as the sound is conducted from your cheekbone and directed to your inner ear.

With this fully waterproofed MP3 player, you can now enjoy your music while swimming, snorkelling and practically any other water activities involving water (may not be a good idea for scuba divers). The SwiMP3 is compatible with Windows and Macs. You will need 32MB hard drive space on your computer and an available USB port.

The SwiMP3 is priced at RM720 (US$199.99) and is available from Finis Inc.

Build an Ant Colony

Antworks AntquariumOwning a pet is a big responsibility. Rearing dogs, cats, cows, horses, hogs, et cetera need dedication and cost large amount of money.

For folks in condominiums and apartments, having a pet is next to impossible unless you fence your beloved in the confines of your floor space. For those who have extra love to give and also for those who are bored out of their minds, go build an ant colony.

To build and ant colony, the easiest way is using an Antquarium. Google “Antquarium” and you will find a number of sites to purchase. For those in Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya, head out to Lower Ground, 1-Utama (there’s a Gizmo shop selling this).

Antworks AntquariumTo work this gadget, get 5-6 ants crawling in or around your house and cage them in the Antquarium. Before you know it, you get a series of tunnels, highways and intersections built right in front of your eyes. These stuff is amazing and I’m sure the ants are pretty pleased too.

If you are not up to it or you feel “geli” (ticklish), the Antquarium is great as gifts for the upcoming festivals.

p.s. Parents, school holidays have started. Go buy this for your kids to save you from mental tortures arising from their hyper-activeness. :mrgreen:
