I'm always looking for new products that are only pleasing to the eye, but are practical and, well, cool. In this case, look no further than MiShare

One of the biggest problems that people have with iPods is that unless you have a diploma in hacking, it is extremely difficult to share your tunes, especially without getting a computer involved. That is of course until now. Want the latest album from your friends' iPod? Simply connect both iPods to the miShare unit, press the button and away you go. It's kind of like swapping Pokemon cards in the playground, although much cooler.

Providing that your files are not DRM (Digital Rights Management, that means if you've bought the song from iTunes I think) protected everything from movies to photos to songs can be transferred. Even entire playlists. Nice. There is however one downside - for now the unit does not work with the iPhone or iPod touch, although we are told that a firmware update is being looked in to.

Developed in Brooklyn and currently being shipped to all corners of the world for US$100, may the sharing epidemic begin.
