The most affordable and innovative thing at the Consumer Electronics Show this year were ACOUSTIBUDS ($20). They are silicone adapters that fit onto any earphone, and they are acoustically engineered to enrich bass, middle and upper range frequencies. Not to mention they fit your ear better, and are less likely to fall out. More pictures.

The other day I saw a woman get hit by a truck while she was riding her bike. She laid next to her bike, unable to move before she was rushed to the hospital. I hope she is okay, and that products like this will help prevent bike accidents. Unfortunately there is no word on price or availability. [via]

I <3 flying bikes, so how could I not like this flying contraption built by a bike manufacturer?! Industrial design students at Austria’s FH Joanneum University were instructed to create designs that could logically fit into KTM’s brand 10 years from now, all while keeping with KTM‘s identity. The KTM Ascender concept, designed by Mariko IIjima, Richard Kastner-Puschl & Richard Mohos would be powered by a gas turbine and have a top speed of 120 km/h. More photos.

I am not exactly sure how this has anything to do with electronics, but it was one of my favorite things to see at the consumer electronics show. The Toyota Tundra Ducati Transporter is the perfect bike hauler. It features a motorized loading ramp, an integrated tool system, storage for spare parts and a set of solar panels mounted on the bed rails to provide auxiliary power. Under the hood is a 5.7-liter supercharged V8, and the inside has Seat Solutions Relaxor Massage chairs. Very awesome! More pictures and the press release.

The ship date has been moved back several times, most recently because LCD’s have taken too long to be produced and bank problems with the orders. Things are slowly coming together.
