ThinkGeek's Retro Bluetooth handset is one funny design. Most of those Bluetooth headsets are just plain annoying. This system is for the people who don't like those clip Bluetooth headsets that make you look like you've just come off the set of Star Trek.

Apparently Bluetooth is named after a 10th century king of Denmark who enjoyed eating blueberries so much that his teeth were stained blue. Harold "Bluetooth" Gormson also helped unite Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, almost the same way that Bluetooth helps unite all of your wireless gadgets under one single protocol. The Retro Handset connects to your cell phone using Bluetooth. It's a great way of looking strange by talking into an old-time handset connected to nothing. The ThinkGeek Bluetooth Retro Handset is available via their online store for about $30.
