Garmin, the well-known navigation company also makes bike computers. Today they unveiled a GPS-enabled bike computer that adds bluetooth to pair with your phone (and piggyback on your network connection). The resulting product video
featuring Garmin's pro team riders is a little Hollywood and a little silly showing riders competing virtually against each other but paints a pretty impressive picture for real-time stats, weather, maps, and data sharing among cyclist friends. More at Wired's Gadget blog
and a complete review at the DC rainmaker

The ultimate in nerdy tattoos?
"Jim Mielke's wireless blood-fueled display is a true merging of technology and body art. At the recent Greener Gadgets Design Competition, the engineer demonstrated a subcutaneously implanted touch-screen that operates as a cell phone display, with the potential for 3G video calls that are visible just underneath the skin."

Back in May, an Egyptian professor found a loophole
to allow an unmarried female to be alone in the presence of a man. All she has to do is breastfeed him 5 times. Radā
is a technical term from Islamic jurisprudence meaning "the suckling which produces the legal impediment to marriage of foster-kinship". Now the good people over at Haase & Martin
have come up with their own way to get under that burka.

Wireless bluetooth headset.
Now you can listen to your tunes wireless and with oddly colored teeth! Bonuses including pushing your ears to change songs, like that guy in Empire Strikes Back.

I don't bite....haaaaaard.
Making the commuter train ride more interesting: Bluetoothing for anonymous sex. Called Toothing
(message board, may be NSFW), randy Brits are using the wonders of technology to find themselves a bit o' fun after a long day's work. Just set your wireless device to discover other nearby devices, send out the 'standard greeting' and get ready to get bizzay. Why do it? Well, the Toothing FAQ
says it all: "It's fun! And exciting! And you can meet some wonderful new people and make proper friends. "
Well, of course! And don't think it's just a British thing, Toothing's goin' international!
So, reach out... reach out and touch someone. Don't forget to floss!
