Aliph Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset has its own operating system, runs apps

Bluetooth headset maker Aliph’s latest headset, the Jawbone Icon has some features that are sure to cause some serious gadget envy. Perhaps the most interesting one has to be that this headset has its very own operating system that can be updated and that can run apps. Yes, that’s right, applications. On a bluetooth headset.

Aliph has a website that you can log into, attach your heaset to your computer via USB, and then push apps directly to it. For example, you can customize the Icon with audio and/or dial apps. The audio apps can change the sound of the voices on your headset.

Sanwa Throat Microphone

Be on the lookout for a new Throat Microphone from Sanwa which is similar in concept to the Jawbone headsets from Aliph.

Useful in noisy situations, the microphone can capture and translate the vibrations produced by the throat back into audible voice. This microphone should also allow you to talk quietly, as the vibrations produced can be read at any voice level.
