Add a little plexiglass and it should work in a motorcycle crash, or you could tell people that.

Lambskincoat: a motorcycle crash


"We are recommending a closed-casket service for your deceased loved one.  They're not mangled beyond recognition, but that farking headphone helmet thing looks HIDEOUS and we don't want to upset your mourning relatives any further"

I thought the $550 Apple headphones were crazy. I could see them luring the germaphobes.

They're only a couple years late with this one - unless they are counting on China.

FTFY, Subby.

I'm not inclined to buy headphones from a vacuum cleaner company. There's a pretty good chance they might suck.

To heck with Deadmau5, this headset will launch my new DJ career!

Pffft, I don't need to pay for some fancy schmancy tech gear not to get laid, I've got that covered naturally!

What stage of mental illness is a portable air purifier? Is this a step before or after keeping your urine in jars?

Don't people want to get freaky with Optimus Prime cosplayers at Comicon?

Not gargoyles. Without a water spout they're grotesques.

"They're only 'gargoyles' if they come from the Gar/Goyle' region of France.  Otherwise, they're just 'sparkling grotesques'"

If pollution is bad enough this could, if it works as advertised, prevent some lung diseases.

Optimus Prime is the first thing I saw.

I just realised the angle Dyson is going for, and it's very smart.

I saw later on you can take the air part off and just use them as normal plain jane headphones.

At first I thought, "What's the point? Why would you buy it just to use them as normal headphones?"

Dyson are selling you an air purifier at a premium price that you'll use for a week, feel like an idiot, get annoyed by the short battery life, then you'll just take it off, never use it again and you paid $1000USD for bluetooth headphones.

They're capturing the paranoid market who have money (think China) and selling them expensive headphones they would otherwise have never bought.

I quit smoking and now the world smells awful. This might be an option if it worked for my watermelon sized head.

Give me noise cancelling earphones, flu-free air, and VR, and I won't care if I ever have sex with other people again.

Hiro Protagonist approves.

Doesn't look nothing like future that Jetstones predicted. Make future great again

Dyson is the Crypto of the appliance world. A collection of solutions desperately in need of a problem.
 
2022-12-09 8:13:13 AM  
I'll wait for the Eureka one that does the same thing for 70 bucks.

Life's rough. Wear a helmet.
 
2022-12-09 10:49:49 AM  
I'm just spitballing here - but maybe the odd unpleasant smell and sound and being able to deal with them are normal and healthy?

Maybe removing everything from perception you don't like is not only a poor solution, but an active  detriment to peoples mental well being?

I'll wait for either the full on Darth Vader or Iron Man mask set up with air filtration, heads up display and J.A.R.V.I.S.

Razor was teasing a similar product but it turned out it was all lies.

I thought these were just some stupid Photoshop put on ads for stupid people. I can't believe this is actually being considered.

It wasn't lies - it just turned out that their filtering wasn't as good as they thought and they had to drop the N95 claim. Without that, it wasn't worth much to most people.
