I'll take one, it's worth it just to see the reaction of my wife when I'm wearing it.

Jahn, off topic, but I can highly recommend the Palmer PDI-03. Actually, I have never heard how my amp is really supposed to sound like before I got it. Brought out the rich harmonics of pushed tubes and I can now easily get that nice tone and tube response/feel.
You should try one out with your gear!

"Fukumoto showed a wearable cell phone shaped like a ring about the size of a ping pong ball. When a wearer sticks his fingers in his ears, the sound travels as vibrations through his bones and into his ears, where it is heard as sound again.

Another iteration of the technology appears in a wristwatch that can detect the wearer's thumb and forefinger tapping together to work as a remote controller for such gadgets as a DVD player."


Wow! This 'future' technology keeps getting closer and closer.


Will I be alive when the thought controlled computers are rolled out?

I can't WAIT till people are shoving their fingers in their ears to make a phone call (bonus points for the thumb ring speaker and pinky finger microphone, so you can use the universal phone gesture for realz.)

I say we assemble Team Legal-Fi and do something about this.
