The Bluetooth earpiece is an essential component of any 21st century d-bag’s uniform, a fact which has generally steered the more cynical gadget-using population away from them. But this custom Bluetooth ear piece shows that you totally get all that.
You get the lameness of self-serious Bluetooth earpieces. You get the ridiculousness of conducting an animated conversation with no apparent interlocutor. And maybe most of all you get the soul-crushing frustration of being beholden to your mobile device at all times.
But you still can’t help fielding your calls! So pulling the trigger on Mike Haeg’s custom Bluetooth (ear)piece answers your phone and its barrel serves as a speaker. But you’re also making sure that people around you know that you’re doing it begrudgingly.
Mike’s contemplating painting the gun to look more realistic, explaining that he gets “equally giddy and frightened by the panic that this could cause should someone not notice that the gun is a fake or should I accidentally take a call while at the bank.” Maybe that’s just the wake up call society needs.
