This Life-Sized Iron Man Helmet Is Actually A Bluetooth Speaker

We all want our own Iron Man suit, complete with flying capabilities and palm cannons. The reality is none of us are billionaire geniuses, so we'll have to make do with what we've got. And that's this to-scale helmet from Tony Stark's famous costume that you don't so much wear on your head as, uh, listen to. Yes, it's a speaker.

The "Iron Man Mark XLIII" speaker comes with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, as well as a 3.5mm jack if you just want to plug in your phone or MP3 player. It comes with a 15W, 82mm subwoofer and two 3W, 40mm speakers. It weight 1.6kg and is around 20cm square.

Now, for the good and bad news. The good: the seller ships to Australia for a magically reasonable $US3. The bad: You'll need $US449 to buy the thing, and that only gets you a preorder. All up, you'll need about $577 Australian to make it yours.

Not sure if I'd gently cradle it on my lap, but to each their own.
