Do you know why people in the midwest are tough? It isn’t because we’re hard working and gritty people. The answer to the question is simply: we deal with crappy weather 4-5 months out of every year which gives us that extra hardness. There are people on the west coast and down south that put on a sweater when it’s 45 degrees out. We consider that shorts and flip flop weather in Kansas. The downside of dealing with snow and other crummy weather are the things that you have to do when it comes in. One of the most painful things you have to do if there is over an inch of snow that falls is shovel the drive way. You basically sit in perfect silence as snow falls all around you and covers up all of the work you’re doing. It is boring, it hurts your back, and it never ends throughout the winter.
Gadgets 4 Guys stumbled across a great KickStarter campaign for a product that should solve a lot of these problems. It’s called the 1 Voice Beanie and it is a great idea (one of those painfully obvious “why didn’t I think of that” products). The beanie itself looks like a pretty standard winter cap but upon further inspection you will find that there is actually built in head phones that will sync with your smart phone via Bluetooth. What does that mean? You can listen to music the entire time you’re outside but don’t have to try and snake your iPhone wires through your winter coat. You won’t have to leave your ears exposed to the elements and still get to listen to that banging new Justin Bieber mix you put together. The 1 Voice Beanie is a simple product that we hope is as comfortable as it looks and the speakers work awesome. Gadgets 4 Guys is hoping to snag one of these to review and to also use this winter and avoid freezing our ears off when we’re trying to listen to Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.
