Introducing The EAR-BONE

Mark Thomas Lickona: “Introducing the EAR-BONE. The world’s first insertable fully-adjustable in-line cord-caddy — for anything you put in or on your ears. It’s more than a storage device. It’s a storage device that allows you to easily spool cords on and off to achieve the right cord length for every situation. Why the EAR-BONE? Because one day I decided that I wanted to be able to make my plug-cord the perfect length for any situation, just like I do with my retractable charge-cord. Why not just buy a pair of retractable ear-buds, you ask? Well, first of all, I like MY ear-buds. Second, if I wanted to have a relatively short plug-cord length, I’d have to have my head down by my plug-in, since retractable buds shorten both plug-cord and ear-cords together. And then there’s the fact that the mechanical spool on my retractable charge-cord is ALWAYS BREAKING. With the EAR-BONE, I have the storage power and cord control that a mechanical spool gives, but with more options, and with MY buds (or my headphones), and there’s no moving parts to break. Easy in and out of pocket too! This model will only be available in Elasto-Plastic. Which is not yet available to the buying public. Though Shapeways has indicated it will be soon. If you like what you see, and would like to get your hands on the EAR-BONE, let Shapeways know.”

    (Has Michael Nesmith friended you on Facebook yet?)
