The Archos Music Beany is a woolly hat that plays music. Seriously, why has no-one thought of that before? It goes on sale in October for £30 in the UK, which works out to 50 bucks in the US or Australia.

The beany made its public debut at IFA, the annual technology trade show in Berlin. Check out CNET's full coverage of IFA 2014 here.
