I have seen several people on the streets on their motorcycle or bike listening music with earphones on from their iPods. So completely unsafe! Having your ears open while operating any type of vehicle is an essential part of staying safe.
The Tunebug, by SVC, uses SurfaceSound vibrations to turn your helmet into a surround sound speaker, letting you keep your ears open to potential hazards around you. The unit straps to any helmet with three strong velcro buttons and can play music via Bluetooth or an aux-in plug. In the chaotic Pepcom convention hall the sound didn’t exact rock my world, but it seemed like the Tunebug’s vibrations would be powerful enough to give you a nice, audible soundtrack in calmer environs.
