Stow and Talk communicator
Scouting the internet, I found this new wireless communication device for motorcycles. It's called Stow 'N Talk and is made in Taiwan. The device from the first glance looks OK.

The Bluetooth device is clipped (or maybe glued) on to your helmet, with a single loudspeaker placed inside your helmet (so no stereo), and a rather big control box placed on the side of your helmet.

So far, nothing really different from other units. The first photo of the device mounted on a helmet looked sexy even. Good enough for me to continue investigating.

Stow and Talk communicator
The unit interfaces with a Bluetooth phone, and through that phone, you can also listen to music (phone permitting). No mention of interfacing with a GPS, but I doubt it.

Then I started looking into pillion communications, ie, an intercom function. You know what I mean if you've read our reviews of these devices. You install a similar unit on your pillion's helmet, and you can talk to each other. Simple right?

Yes, the Stow 'N Talk has an intercom, sort of. But not the way you'd expect it. The next photo will show you how they produced a 21st century version of shouting to your rider....


Stow and Talk communicator
A microphone unit is placed in the back of your helmet. Your pillion will speak into that unit.....

Wait a minute! So instead of shouting to the side, your pillion will shout into the microphone in the back of your head. Elegant... Not!

I presume that the microphone also functions as a loudspeaker so you can "shout" at your pillion.

On top of that, the control unit is deep, far too deep, since you'll be catching wind, no matter how streamlined the unit it. This might be interesting for mopeds...

No price known. Apparently the manufacturing company is called Chia-Soon Electronics Open link in a new window though the product is not listed on their site.
