Sort Of Bring Your Old Car Into the 21st Century With Brando's Bluetooth Steering Wheel MP3 PlayerS

Brando's new Steering Wheel Bluetooth MP3/FM Car Kit is a wacky little device that hangs on your steering wheel, giving you all sorts of different features probably done better by a nice in-dash stereo kit.

First, there's a Bluetooth speakerphone for hands free driving, including an ugly little Bluetooth headset. There's also a built-in MP3 player that reads files off microSD cards and transmits audio to your stereo via an FM transmitter.

The phonebook holds 600 numbers, the battery is rechargeable, and this thing seems like a crappy substitute for any number of better gadgets. But hey, for $48 it's probably one of the cheapest ways to get all of these features into a beater you don't feel like upgrading with a nice in-dash stereo. [Brando via CrunchGear]
