Riding a motorcycle doesn’t mean you have to give up your tunes thanks to Software developer Nippon MMI Technology Inc. Apparently they have developed a bone conducing speaker that safely allows the listening of music by placing them in your helmet. In the past these types of speakers struggled to get safety approval due to their bone breaking like material – think if you got in an accident and had a magnet/coil near your head. The new speakers are based on a piezoelectric ceramic, a material that won’t crack your dome open.

The speakers will run about $50 in South Korea and Japan. No word yet if they will appear in the US.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
