BlueAnt releases headset for motorcycle helmets

BlueAnt motorcycle headset

BlueAnt has taken the unusual step of producing the InterPhone, a Bluetooth headset designed specifically for motorcycle riders. The device attaches to both full- and open-faced helmets, and (with the aid of voice commands) enables completely hands-free use of a cellphone, which is essential given the danger of pulling away from the handlebar.

Fitting the difficult environment of its use, the InterPhone is built to be water-resistant and windproof, with further DSP processing done to reduce echoes and ambient noise. Owners can ride with the the headset at speeds up to 80mph, and treat it as an intercom if other InterPhone users are within 490 feet. The device is out now for $189.
