Concept headphones capture and project pictures

Designer's music headphones would incorporate a 10.1-megapixel camera and a mini projector to motivate more people to explore their surroundings.

I'll say it first if no one else will. I'm not going to be caught dead with this pair of weird-looking headphones on my head or around my neck.

Now, I have nothing against industrial designer William Gerwin, but his concept of a pair of music headphones that incorporate a 10.1-megapixel camera and a mini projector just looks unbearably funny. His inspiration for this idea is to motivate more people to explore their surroundings by giving them better tools. Hence, the 3-in-1 gizmo.

He also conceptualized the headphones with wireless connectivity to enable peer-to-peer networking and backup of information to the Internet or your computer.

I would consider buying this pair of cans for my ears, but only if it looked...less odd.
