Today we’re pleased to pre-announce the Twitter Helmet™, a sophisticated, fully immersive, staggeringly high-resolution wearable device that allows our users to interact with the world around them entirely via a custom aviary interface.

The helmet is created with an impact-resistant, oleophobic-treated glass. The wearer can tweet through a simple “pecking” head motion.Twitter Moves Into Wearables With A New Twitter Helmet [blog.twitter.com]


I can't wait to get one. I understand there's a tin foil version on the offing, too. ;)

now the 4-photo tweets-and-tagging update makes sense.

The pecking head motion is just too "funky chicken". I love it! However, when looking through options it seems like they are catering toward the male gender and have a great selection of football, motorcycle, space, spartan, viking and even construction hard hat styles. [bing.com...]

This is not going to be something you would wear during the course of a day,or when driving, etc. I need a fashionable hat that won't detract from my outfit that day!

And, I also have issues with the pecking motion, for obvious reasons. What are they thinking?

My iOS 7 Siri is now a male voice, which I personally appreciate, and I think he is actually smarter than my previous model; in understanding me better.

Why not take the helmet technology to the level of voice? Pecking is just so....strange. Not to mention the major fashion faux pau.

Love the share! Great way to start my day:-)

I heard they only have 140 in stock, so only 140 characters will be able to wear one...

Early test prototypes included audio, but beta testers reported a constant low-level chirping sound in the background, which couldn't be turned off.

One tester, who reportedly became incoherent after trying to mimic the persistent background noise, attempted to withdraw by switching to Facebook. He is now beginning to exhibit spastic finger motions, though, brought on by clicking Like buttons.
