I’ve been hearing rumblings of the Nike+ Fuelband throughout my various social networks, so I finally decided to take a deeper look at it.  What I found could be one of the greatest inventions for those geeks who take their exercise seriously, but want to do it in a way that’s fun.  The Nike+ Fuelband is a bracelet that records all of your physical movements to provide you with a daily read out of how much Nike Fuel you’ve built up, which is essentially their magical formula to rate your daily activities (also records calories burned).  You can then port this data to one of your mobile devices to set new goals and track your progress.  Like I mentioned the Nike+ Fuelband just does enough to make exercising a game, or life as a sport, as well as a bitchin wrist gadget to make your buddies turn green with geek envy.

Unfortunately, it seems that I’m not the only gadget guru who is yearning for a Nike+ Fuelband, because they’re very hard to find right now.  Nike’s site is currently sold out, and you can’t even pre-order the device for its next shipment, so obviously this thing is the hot gadget to own right now.  Due to this shortage I now have a new mission in life that will not let my mind rest until I secure a Nike+ Fuelband!  I love pining for a new gadget as it gives my geek life meaning.  I guess I’ll just have to sit and wait until Nike starts sh*ting these devices out like hotcakes.  Bummer.  You’ve been wishing you bought this thing before it became a fad…
