    I think he's trying to say it appeals to 5 year olds.

    To anyone wondering what it looks like in motion, some of my friends were sent one. They don't look as weird as you might think. The video they uploaded about the hat is here:


    Having tried it myself, it most probably won't be worth the price they'll end up charging for it.

    Is Atari just trolling us at this point?

    Stay tuned for shoes with Raspberry Pi's built in, and scarfs with integrated solar panels.

    Hat with speakers that can annoy anyone around you ...
    .. I think I would rather go for something like Zungle glasses - keep the music to myself

    You'd crush 'em with every step.

    Solar panels aren't bendable if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't like the idea. If you're listening to it loud it could cause eye problems. If it was where headphones go then maybe. But honestly, I don't like it.

    I think you meant to say ear problems. This has less potential to cause ear problems than headphones or earbuds, and I doubt the speaker will even be anywhere near loud enough to the point where it could damage them at all

    Thanks a lot. Now I've got a mental image (okay: video) of someone turning up the volume to such a ridiculous degree that his eyes pop out. :rofl2:
    (of course the mental image ends with that oldskool "THX...the audience is listening" message :P ).
    Just be glad that atari didn't design THAT device...

    That's one Jaguar that Atari wishes was theirs.

    isn't it just like Atari to back step from an earbud? This is the boombox trend all over again....
