Bluetooth headsets have pretty much lost their coolness. If designers like Ilshat Garipov get a chance, however, their coolness factor could skyrocket and some headset maker could grab a huge market share.
Garipov's Bluetooth headset could double as a fashion accessory. Its inspiration obviously came from a droplet and is geared toward a woman. Now how about something masculine?
Implications - Even the most advanced technological gadgets can fall out of favor with consumers if they are needlessly unattractive, bulky or obtrusive. As such, it is always incumbent upon innovative companies to constantly be on the lookout for ways to make personal gadgets sleeker, more stylish and user-friendly whenever possible. Their enhanced desirability will pay dividends for companies willing to look beyond their traditional limitations.
