This helps tourist tours guides to deliver their spiel with complete efficiency. Everybody that's been on a guide assisted tourist tour knows that, while the guide is droning "and now see the voultes of the third chapitel by the right of the homage tower" everybody and his mother is paying attention to anything but that. Now you have those helmets. They are fitted with GPS and a powerful set of gyroscopes slaved to it. They are bluethooted with the one the guide wears, so when the gide looks somewere, all the other helmets follow and point to the same place. Every tourist must firmly tie one in place while on the tour, or else. We've had some broken spines when the helmets tried to turn somebody's neck too far, but apart from that little inconvenace, it's OK.

       I guess I've lost the hang of it, so I will spine myself.

       Don't be daft, you should feel proud of yourself - you've invented the process of bluethooting, which is probably exactly what civilisation requires at this juncture.

       Fully wireless lisp.

       Makes you think.

       Well, perhaps I shouldave said greenthooting?.
finflazo, Mar 11 2006
  

       And why did it appear all that stuff down there?. I did something wrong.

       Interesting concept, but I'm afraid I'll pass - I strained my neck a year ago and I still can't take someone else yanking my head around.

       These helmets could be used for remote chiropractic sessions as well. [+]

       If bodysuits could be designed along these principles,it would make for some effortless synchronized dancing.

       I like the idea as long as the driver doesn't wear one as well.   

       And what happens when the tour guide gets distracted by the blonde in the tight jeans?   

       Was this idea taken from the concept of country yokels craning their necks the first time they see a tall building in the big city, when they point and say "Hey, looky thar!"?   

       Trust Ian to come up with the most pithy comment.
