Bizarre Beach Gadget: Radio Headset-Cum-Headrest
June 18, 2008
What: A water-resistant headrest – that looks kind of like a luggage stand – with a built-in radio that conveniently places speakers by your ears. The whole thing is 19 inches long when it’s open, and lifts your head about five inches off the ground. You can snag one for $39.95.
Why: In no particular order…
1. I’m usually that girl at the beach who can’t relax and go into iPod land – I have to know what’s going on around my head. This personal surround sound setup lets you stay connected to the outside world while listening to music at the same time.
2. …without annoying other beachgoers by blasting music from a huge boom box (does anyone else still say boom box?).
3. It lifts your head up to the perfect angle for looking around (see #1) or reading without staring directly into the sun.
4. Don’t you sort of miss listening to the radio?
Honestly, the only thing I'd be worried about is looking kind of silly.
