Though we’ve run stories on hi-tech vicars using broadband to deliver sermons, don’t think we’ve ever covered any religious gadgets on Tech Digest. Let’s hope this one, spotted on the BBC’s Northern Ireland, website is the first of many. It goes by the simply divine name of the GodPod and is a solar-powered speaking bible that snuggly in your pocket. Apparently it’s great for people with reading difficulties, the blind and just the darned lazy who can’t be arsed carrying a big book around with them. Because it’s solar powered it’s particularly handy for the third world. Whatever next? Robot vicars anyone?
