iRosary uses the advantages of the iPod to make the rosary more attractive and flexible for younger believers. At the same time, however, it reciprocally uses the significance of both objects as practical commodities on the one side and symbolic signs on the other and only changes the objects to a minimum extent.

The most important distinguishing feature of the iPod, the white earphones cable, becomes a string of beads on which only one bead is now found. This bead can be shifted. The position of the bead can be measured and heard as audio beads on a sensitive range of the cable. Due to technical possibilities, the new rosary can help a person to learn the prayer; the right mysteries are inserted automatically and there are various modes for choosing the degree of difficulty.

Oh my goodness, that is so cool :thumbsup:
My daughter and her Kairos friends will love this. They pray the rosary daily.

Thanks for the link!

Can’t figure out how to order one of those though. It seems it’s in the ‘news’ section so maybe it isn’t available for purchase yet? :frowning:

Apparently it’s a university art student’s design (German) and so all the articles are in other languages. It appears the only way to get this mass produced would be to campaign to APPLE to get them to buy this kid’s design and produce it themselves.

I don’t know the medium used to get the work out to potential investors and such that this is worth taking on. :cool:

Here’s the actual design project submitted by the student for the course:

Worth noting is the ‘settings’ categories for the user: Infidel, Believer, Sherpherd. :blush:
