Cell Phone Headsets

(Possibly baked -- rmutt seems to be behind the curve on phone technology, but here goes anyway).

Cellphones are getting smaller and lighter -- some Japanese i-mode phones weigh in at less than 50 grams. This is light enough that it's not inconceivable to actually wear the entire thing on your head, like those goofy radio-headphones from the 70's. So why not put a spring clip in the back of a cellphone that will go over the top of your head, and hold it in the right position? It could even retract like a tape measure, so would only marginally affect the form factor of the phone.

       Ah - I actually misunderstood the original idea. That's what comes of trying to work at the same time as reading HalfBakery...

       Why use a spring clip for a cell phone, when duct tape is so plentiful????

       Juct check out anything related to "Bluetooth" on the web - You can wear your pc on your head if you give those guys enough money.
