[Dennis] points out that the iPod shuffle and the iPod remote are almost identical visually. He decided to combine the two so he always had his remote with him. He pulled the guts out of a remote and mounted them in a shuffle. The remote functions all of the time, while the shuffle only turns on when you insert headphones. We wonder if he accidentally does stuff on his computer while he’s changing songs.

other than the buttons, I’m not sure how you can say that this (http://beatthat.com/cached_images/product/767.jpg) looks identical to this (http://www.ipresents.co.uk/a/i/stuff/apple-remote.jpg)
A pretty need idea though. Might want to add a switch to disable the infrared remote, so your not confusing macs everywhere when jumping through your playlist.
Very cool use of the identical button layout, though it seems a shame to muck with a clip-shuffle considering how lame the new version is.
A magnetic reed switch and small neodymium magnet would let you switch on the remote without hacking up the case. If you lost the magnet, just sticking an earbud next to it ought to suffice.
1st gen shuffle.
considering the remote part is always on… well yeah i do change songs while i change songs on the shuffle … its not to bad since i only use the shuffle when i am outside.. but i am planing on a second version where the remote switches of .. (by plugging in the headphone(but then you wont be able to use it as a remote when charging)) and the shuffle/circle can be toggled with the menu button
Well thats cool i never thought that any one can do these kind of experiments at home even. I would like to buy this kind of stuff, i will also try to do the same by myself.
Now I will buy the new shuffle. I have been waiting for this product for a couple of months now.
@ scart vga
just to inform you … connecting the new (3gen) ipod shuffle will be much harder
