The Bodibeat will select a tune that is equal to your pace whether you walk, run, or something in between. Choose from three modes, free workout, fitness, and training. Settings include tempo guide, song transition, and bass boost. It also doubles as a basic MP3 player with heart rate monitor. Expect the Bodibeat’s debut in the 3rd Quarter. Contact Yamaha for more details and price.

I-Jerry Makes Music Sitting Down

i-JerryMade by I-Mu, I-Jerry is a rodent-like MP3 Player with 1 GB memory. Control him by the ear, and get ready for his bottom which, when placed on a surface, turns it into a speaker. The company also features an i-Pig, an i-Bird, and a basic design that does the same thing, but we have to admit we are partial to the mouse. Visit the i-Mu site and find out there is more to music than sound, it’s a philosophy. Expect an arrival later this year at a $99.00 price.

Share a Hub, Become a RockStar

RockStarBelkin’s RockStar is a mini-jack hub that has six ports, one in and five out to split music between friends and their headphones. (We won’t tell if you take one to work and divvy up the ports between cubicles.) The 5 outputs can also be configured to be ingoing, too, so that you and your buds can mix and match music. The RockStar will work with iPhones, all models of iPods, and other MP3 players, and will be available from Belkin and various retailers this March for $20.00.
