Digital Rosary

Italian inventor, Onorio Frati, has devised an 'electronic rosary' which allows a person to listen to the rosary being recited without using traditional beads. The small egg-shaped gadget  is small enough to fit in your pocket. 

While more tech-savvy Catholics might opt for the ipod application, Frati's model might appeal to people that don't want to fiddle with a touch screen.

Sold in over 400 locations in Italy, the device can also be bought online, customized and available in English or Italian.

Just in time for Pope John Paul II beatification ceremony in May, this limited edition model  even has the late pontiff's voice.
