Designer Gopinath Pransana has come up with a genius concept—the iBangle, a thin aluminum bracelet with icy blue accents which plays music and has built-in functions a la the iPod, including a multi-touch trackpad (shown above). It would also have an air chamber to inflate, so the bracelet doesn't slip around the wrist. Listen to music via wireless in-ear headphones and you're good to go. Check out all the photos here, and dare to dream of Apple bringing the iBangle to life.
