The most unnecessary headset ever

Brando baffles with its "Stylus Hanging Bluetooth Headset."

Brando

Hong Kong-based Brando's obsession with combining gadgetry has been long documented in this space, from its mouse massagers to aromatherapy speakers . And every once in awhile one of its lab rats actually turns out to be something useful . Not this time.

The "Stylus Hanging Bluetooth Headset" is as baffling as its name suggests. The headset hangs from your neck but must still be connected to some kind of headphones, while touting its weak multi-tasking role as a stylus. Which would make it the largest and most cumbersome stylus in the history of technology. They would have been better off making it into an LED or pen . Or something.
