Speaker fashion on the handlebars

Wireless unit looks like a spaceship console.


While we continue to maintain that speakers for bikes and motorcycles are of dubious value if you ride amid the din of Manhattan or Tokyo traffic, we do agree that they're preferable to headphones for safety reasons. And while enjoying your music in the open air, you might as well look good too--that's where "Cy-fi" comes in.

Scheduled for release next year, Cy-fi looks more like a spaceship console affixed to the handlebars than a speaker designed specifically for the iPod Nano. And to prove it's not just a pretty face, it uses wireless Kleer technology that claims to provide CD-quality sound, according to SCI FI Tech.

It'll set you back $150, but that's a minimal price to pay for a bold fashion statement for all to see (and hear). Besides, it'll save you the embarrassment of riding with something that would be a candidate for the gadget equivalent of What Not to Wear.
