Oakley Brings Bluetooth to Sunglasses

Here's the cool and fun product for the weekend. The O ROK Pro bluetooth sunglasses from Oakley allow wireless connection to your mp3 player and your phone simultaneously. This is a pretty cool idea for those of you who are gadget fanatics and don't mind looking like you are part of the borg.

Imagine the following:

You’re on your lunchtime bike ride, listening to your favorite tunes. The music is wirelessly streaming from your iPod® and playing through your sunglasses. Built-in speakers give you crystal clear sound, and the wires that used to hang from your ears have been replaced with something that doesn’t snag, tangle or tie you down: open air.

You decide to play your favorite song and crank the volume for the inspiration that will get you up the next hill. No need to dig out your iPod®. You simply push buttons on your sunglasses. It’s total wireless freedom, and because the controls are part of something you’re already wearing, you have instant access.
Now the music pauses automatically and you hear a soft ringtone over the speakers. You press a button on your sunglasses to answer the incoming call. No need to fumble for your mobile phone. The call comes through your eyewear so your hands are free, letting you continue the ride.

Once your call is finished, the music automatically resumes playing through your sunglasses, right where you left off, without forcing you to fumble with controls or fish out earbuds. And you wonder how you ever survived the age of wires.

Introducing O ROKR™ Pro, the latest in the Sport Performance line of eyewear from Oakley and Motorola. O ROKR™ Pro wirelessly streams digital music, and even lets you control the music wirelessly. Just use the buttons on the frame to select songs on your Bluetooth® Stereo-enabled mobile phone or your iPod® equipped with an ODIO™ iA50 Bluetooth® adapter. O ROKR™ Pro also offers the convenience of hands-free wireless communication with your compatible mobile phone — which means it works as a Bluetooth® Headset except there’s nothing to clip on your ear, and the conversation comes through crystal clear in both ears.

Best of all, O ROKR™ Pro integrates these technologies from Motorola with the world-class innovations of Oakley eyewear. Total freedom in a lightweight sport-inspired design, the frame resists sweat and includes user-changeable lenses with the clarity of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) and Oakley HYDROPHOBIC™, a permanent lens coating that repels water, skin oils and dust.
