Are Those Your Sunglasses I Hear Ringing?

Motorola and Oakley have developed a combination sunglasses/cell-phone headset product line that offers another option for hands-free gabbing while driving.

How about some Bluetooth wireless capabilities along with that UV protection?

Motorola Inc. and sunglass maker Oakley Inc. are coming out with a line of combination sunglasses/cell-phone headsets, called Razrwire, that lets the wearer carry on phone conversations while up to 30 feet away from a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. The companies indicate that one obvious use for Razrwires is driving: Drivers can protect their eyes from the harmful rays of the sun, while looking fashionable as they talk hands-free on a cell phone.

Razrwire uses Motorola's third-generation Bluetooth technology and supports the Bluetooth RF protocol, which makes it compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled cell phones and devices. Motorola says the wearable technology has easy-to-use controls, including two volume buttons and a button for handling incoming and outgoing calls.

Razrwire will be available for purchase in early August at select Cingular Wireless retail stores and online for $295.
