Semicircular headphones, so you don't get hit by a bus

Headphones / Earphones

These semicircular bluetooth headphones, from designer Seohyun Baek, are designed for cyclists. The idea is that they fit into your ears, but don’t block out external noise – like that lorry frantically beeping at you to get out the way.

Sadly they’re just a concept product at the moment, but anyone who’s ever nearly been mown down on a bike because they weren’t quite concentrating on the road will appreciate the value of good situational awareness. Particularly if you live in a big city.
