Ring Bluetooth Headset - Solves the problem of where to put it...

Bluetooth headsets are generally fine gadgets, but they're less compelling as fashion statements. People who keep them in their ear nonstop are easy targets for ridicule, but stashing them anywhere else negates their quick-access raison d'etre. The Orb, shown here - apparently a real product coming soon from Hybra Advance Technology and AbsolutelyNew - tries to solve that problem by putting the headset on your finger when you're not on a call. It's a (reasonably sized, comfortable?) ring which "twists" out to become a snakelike earpiece. Looks great, sounds useful... I just hope the real thing ends up looking as good as these renderings!

You wonder why no one has thought of making a bluetooth set for women (and confident men) that is actually an earring. Then you really wouldn't have to take it off at all. And you can't say that it would be too cumbersome -- anyone who wears earrings has to own at least one shoulder-length gigantic showy pair.

Oooh, I like it! Just gotta find a design that works with all/most outfits, and you're set! :-)
