Bluetooth helmet lets you crash in style

Music, phone can be controlled by gloves too

Gearfuse

We're relieved that Motorola has apparently decided to consult some people in the fashion industry before introducing their newest line of headgear. That, anyway, is the only explanation we can assume for the contrast between its utterly nerdsome MP3 knit cap of last winter and the Bluetooth bike helmet it's co-branded with Red.

The helmet has been touted for bike riding, but Gearfuse points out that it can be used just as well for skateboarding, snowboarding or other life-threatening activities we're far too old to contemplate. Using Motorola's Audex system, it can also work with special controller gloves that can switch tracks or answer your phone in surround-sound goodness.

That could also make the trip in the ambulance just a little more bearable.
