Earphones rattle the bones, even out of water

The "Vibe Body Sound" is worn outside the ear.


When we first saw a photo of someone wearing these "Vibe Body Sound" earphones by Outi, we thought they'd been put on backward. So we didn't stare or say anything for fear of humiliating the poor sap, just as mom always taught us.

Then it turns out that it was the right way to wear them after all, because they use that body-conduction technology we keep hearing about. This pair clips to the skin and cartilage of the outer ear just above the lobe and sends the sound vibrating through the skull, according to Coolest-Gadgets.

We've seen other headgear based on the same principle, but usually the in-ear variety is reserved for underwater use. Either way, it's enough to give us a massive headache just thinking about it.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
