Deep within the bowels of the blogosphere there lay a blog called the Infinity burial project. It’s a DIY endeavor by this artist-slash-researcher Jhae Rim Lee who wants to find a better way to die. Naturally, of course.
Like the Portal 2 song goes, this would be funny if it weren’t so sad. Not the fact that Apple has enough money to rebuild Cupertino in $20 dollar bills five times over, nobody would dispute the fact that it’s more than earned it.

It’s called the Timesnap, a wrist gadget that’s so packed with features we’re surprised it isn’t a smartphone as well. Fundamentally a well endowed MP3 and MP4 player, the Timesnap packs 4GB of storage space and video playing capabilities.
It’s a mean muzack player to boot and has an upgradable SD memory (goes to 8GB). On top of these lovely attractions, the Timesnap–hold your breath–is also an e-reader, though we doubt reading text from such a small screen would be enticing.
