Good Idea or Dumb Idea? #1 — Bike Helmet with Speakers
February 1, 2006
I want to listen to my iPod while I’m on my bike, but I don’t want to wear earbuds — I’m still a little nervous about riding my bike through town during peak hour, so I want hear everything that’s going on around me.
So, why doesn’t someone put some little speakers inside my bike helmet, right above my ears? I’m not overly fussy about sound quality; I just want to listen to a little Johnny Cash as I ride home after a few drinks, or maybe some Daft Punk or White Stripes to encourage me to get up that damn hill.
Is this a good idea or a dumb idea?
