Talk about design. Italian motorcycle helmet manufacturer New Max Open link in a new window have launched a new "brand" with an integrated Bluetooth wireless communicator. All done in an utmost stylish way; both the helmet and communicator will look good on any A-list celebrity.

IDI-ZeroUno
IDI-ZeroDue
The IDI Helmets Open link in a new window are already beautifully designed helmets, with customizable shells to match the color of your motorcycle or outfit.

The futuristic looking helmets, the ZeroUno Open link in a new window (with a large visor) or ZeroDue Open link in a new window (with a mini visor) would not look out of place in Blade Runner.

You can specify the color of the helmet shell and of the main color parts.

IDIPhone
You can add to these two helmets models, the IDIPhone Open link in a new window. This Bluetooth 2.1 device actually looks like a mobile phone. The all-in-one unit consists of the electronics, controls, loudspeaker and microphone. Because of its thickness, it can't be used in flip-up or integral helmets, just for the jet style helmets.

The IDIPhone actually looks like a mobile phone.

NOTE
: I'm even wondering why they have not made it into a mobile phone. Once you arrive at your destination, uncouple of the device and use it as mobile phone. That would make a lot of sense.

IDIPhone
You slide the IDIPhone into the special clamp that is assembled in the left side of the helmet, replace the ear padding for the ear-padding-with-loudspeakers at the right ear, and you're in business. You only need to replace one ear padding, since the main unit not only has the microphone, but also one of the stereo loudspeakers.

The IDIPhone uses Bluetooth 2.1, it is full stereo (A2DP) and supports both HSP Open link in a new window and HFP Open link in a new window profiles.

This type of Bluetooth connection also allows you to communicate with another IDIPhone unit over a distance of around 200 meters (218 yards). So you can use it as an intercom, or for a limited bike-to-bike.

IDIPhone-

You can connect the IDIPhone to Bluetooth equipped mobile phones, music players and Bluetooth GPSs.

The internal battery should give you about 10 hours speaking time. The whole unit adds about 150 grams (5.29 ounces) to your helmet.

Turning the device on and off is done by inserting the unit into the helmet, or removing it. The unit is rain proof, so you can keep it in the helmet when raining.

Cost: n/a
Availability: n/a
