Orb Bluetooth

Bluetooth headsets have been consistently dorky which is why I use the corded headset with my iPhone.  I just don’t want to be “that guy”.

This is about to change… Hybra Advance Technology and AbsolutelyNew Inc are launching the ORB, a technological and design breakthrough for the Bluetooth headset.  The Orb starts off as a ring (there will be different sizes) that you wear on your finger.  When you need to make a call the Orb transforms to a clean looking (earring?) headset.

Incorporating NXT technology the Orb provides high quality bone conduction audio without the discomfort of placing a device inside the ear. A Deluxe edition also features a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Device (FOLED) screen to display caller ID, calendar reminders, and voice-to-text information for communication without taking the ring off the finger.

The base model Orb is scheduled to launch in January 2010 carrying a suggested retail price of USD$129, while the Deluxe edition is due in April 2010 with a price of USD$175.

    Calin – looks like they are still “in development” aka this thing might never see the light of day. They do have a form where you can enter your info and they will update you if they make progress. Here is the link – http://hybratech.com/products/orb.php
