This might be one of the coolest things ever- it’s a bluetooth headset that folds up into a ring to wear around your finger when not in use. A simple twist and it converts. It’s called the Orb and it’s scheduled to launch in January. Yep, it might look like a concept but this tiny bluetooth headset is really being made.
If you’re a frequent wireless earpiece user with your cellphone you usually only have a few choices about where to put your headset when it’s not in use. You can leave it on your ear, which just looks weird and a bit pretentious- like you’re talking on the phone all the time or are expecting important calls constantly. You could put it aside on a table or someplace but then you have to scramble to go find it when you want to use it. Or you could put it in your pocket, which is a bit of an awkward proposition at times and do you really need one more thing in your pockets?
So the ability to place the headset around your finger like a ring is a hugely convenient way to always have access to your earpiece. The device will retail for $129 (more if you want it bejeweled) and will come in a variety of sizes to fit your finger.
