As soon as the newest iPod Nano was released, there was talk of turning it into a wristwatch. Its compact size and touch screen combined in what appeared to be the do-it-all watch companies had attempted to make for so long. Ideas were floated, concepts were mocked up; it seemed inevitable that a flood of cheap Apple add-ons would reach the marketplace. Scott Wilson of Minimal Inc. in Chicago knew that he'd have competition. His solution?

"To create a collection that was well designed, engineered and manufactured from premium materials and that complemented the impeccable quality of Apple products. Not just clipped on a cheap strap as an afterthought. We wanted to create a product that your friends and strangers would stop you and ask 'WTF is that??? And where can I get one?!'"

Wilson posted his project on Kickstarter, an online platform for funding independent creative projects. Though his goal was listed at $15,000, that number was quickly surpassed in a matter of days. As it stands now, the project has been backed to the tune of almost $300,000...with 23 days left to collect additional funds.

TikTok (projected retail: $34.95) is a simple snap-in design. It allows the user to easily and securely snap the Nano into the wrist dock. It cleanly and simply integrates the Nano and transforms it into a modern multifunction timepiece.

LunaTik (projected retail: $69.95) is designed and intended to be a premium conversion kit for someone that wants to dedicate their Nano to being a watch and the newest conversation piece with their friends. It is forged from Aerospace Grade Aluminum and then machined via CNC into its final form.
