Nike and Apple have put forth a simple and inexpensive gadget that has the potential to inspire the listless, out-of-shape masses to break free from their keyboards and remotes and to engage in healthy physical exercise. The Nike+iPod Sport Kit is also a great tool for already-active runners, joggers and walkers who want to add some high-tech game to their exercise regimen."</i> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/20060723_1710261.gif" /> <br /><br />This is basically a high tech pedometer that interfaces with the iPod nano. You are supposed to use this along with special Nike shoes that have a place in the insole for the transmitter; however, the reviewer found that the transmitter will work with pretty much any pair of shoes, so at under $30 this seems like a heck of a deal.
