Invisible Bluetooth Headset Is One Eardrum Away From Touching Your Brain

From the eccentric brainiacs at Skymall comes the Invisible Bluetooth Headset. I can see it causing permanent deafness, but not because of a volume level issue.

More like it's the size of a matchstick head and I can definitely picture it hammering an eardrum the moment someone drops it into the ear canal. And, I shit you not, this "headset" comes with a super strong magnet for easy retrieval! What could go wrong?!

But wait, there's more! Since this was originally designed for Secret Service types in mind, there's also a Morse code communication feature that allows for silent communication with another party. Perfect for tapping out SOS to your doctor when you go deaf and need a consult.

Just $200 and this guaranteed trip to an emergency room is yours for the taking. [Skymall via OhGizmo]

DISCUSSION

I don't wear bluetooth headsets but if I did I would want them to be as visible as possible so people wouldn't think I'm talking to myself. With this you not only risk damaging your eardrum, but everyone around you will think you're crazy. Especially when you tell them you're wearing an invisible bluetooth headset.
