That is weird... There was no pricing; I wonder how much those would cost?

Remids me of something I heard on NPR the other day: supposedly the technology exists to build a cell phone into your tooth! No microphone or speaker, the sound is transmitted by vibrations through your skull.

That reminds me:

Lee Iacocca, Ted Turner, Ross Perot and Bill Gates are playing golf. Suddenly, something rings, Lee Iacocca reaches into his golf bag, picks up a cell phone, conducts a conversation and puts it back.

They play a bit more, and something else rings. Ted Turner makes a "phone" with his hand by putting the thumb to his hear and speaks into a pinky. Everyone looks at him and asks: What are you doing? Ted Turner replies: "Well, I was losing my cell phone constantly, so I had a receiver implanted in my thumb and a microphone in my pinky. So, now every time I need to talk, I just talk into my hand. Can't lose the phone".

They continue playing, suddenly, Ross Perot stops and just starts talking. Everyone asks: Ross, what are you doing??? Ross Perot replies: "Well, I also kept losing my phone, but I didn't want to make stupid hand gestures every time I needed to talk, so I had a receiver implanted in my ear and a microphone in my tooth. So, now if I need to talk, I just talk".

So, they continue playing and all of a sudden, Bill Gates stops, drops his pants and takes out a roll of toilet paper. Everyone looks at him and says: "Bill!!! What are you doing???"

To which Bill Gates replies: "Oh, don't mind me, I'm just expecting a fax".

I suppose since these headphones are shown off with a woman wearing them we should expect magicthyse to be owning a pair very soon.......

Pioneer sold a bone phone (as it were) back in the late'70's-early '80's. It was worn behind the neck then over and in front of the shoulders. I haven't seen one since.

It seemed to me that they used an unusually happy (and good) looking woman to model it for them as well.
