Bradbury's Green Bullet Made Possible With Bluetooth
Bluetooth headsets seem to be disappearing! Nextlink will release the Bluetooth 5G Cell Phone Headset later this year. Just 5 grams!
As sf fans may recall, Professor Faber uses a green bullet, a miniaturized tranceiver, to whisper helpful advice in Montag's ear as he goes about his work as a fireman in Fahrenheit 451:
"It looks like a seashell radio."
"And something more! It listens! If you put it in your ear, Montag, I can sit comfortably home, warming my frightened bones, and hear and analyze the firemen's world..." (More)
Thanks to Bluespoon's miniscule Bluetooth Headset (Engadget) for finding this one. If you can't wait, download some 5g wallpaper here.
