Gizmodo : Oakley Thump MP3 Sunglasses

“Too bad they look like the sort of thing that would happen if Batman quit fighting crime and starting managing a Lenscrafters.”

Not my quote, but damn sure sounds like me. Great idea. Lance wore these during the TDF. I’d like to point out though that a more practical idea would be headphones/minispeakers that clip to the edge of the helmet just above your ears and use an IR transmitter mounted on the handlebars. Hrm. I should patent that.
