Skiers and snowboarders want to look cool blasting down the slopes. Helmets aren't cool. Until now. This helmet has a Bluetooth Headset so you won't be stuck zipping downhill sporting ugly wires. Another bonus: the helmet has lots of vents, so your head won't get sweaty (nothing more uncomfortable than frozen hair.) Consumer Reports rated the Giro helmets as the top brand for head protection.
Don't forget your goggles!
Implications - The rise of the mobile phone industry has altered communication needs in society. Phones were once used as necessary communication tools. Today, being without a phone at all times is frowned upon. As a result, companies are creating options that take mobility to new heights by placing communication devices such as Bluetooth and USB ports in clothing and other such items not typically associated with communication technology.
