We were just tipped to a product called earHero, a new line of headphones which promote stealth, but safety at the same time. earHero uses a tube-based audio system that can go up your back and around your head into each ear. If you’ve ever seen a secret service agent, an FBI agent, or an agent of any other cool government or private firms, you’ll know what I’m talking about. These aren’t meant to be micro-communications devices, however – they’re just your run of the mill … [Read more...]

Two things: the reapers falling down from the sky … [Read more...]
