Believe it or not, this ring transforms into a Bluetooth headset

Bluetooth headsets have been popular for years now, and they've come a long way from the first clunky and uncool-looking designs that graced the tech world not so long ago. Unfortunately, since they're still usually designed to fit the shape of the ear comfortably, they've been awkwardly hard to store in pockets when not in use.

The "Orb", an innovative new headset which is scheduled to launch in January 2010, is a sexy-looking Bluetooth headset that transforms into a ring with a simple twist of the device.

The Orb's design isn't the only thing it boasts - it also incorporated NXT technology to provide high quality bone conduction audio without the discomfort of placing a device in the ear.

A deluxe edition of this gadget will feature a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Device (FOLED) screen to display caller ID, calendar reminders, and voice-to-text information for communication without taking the ring off your finger.

The Orb will be available at prices starting around US$129.
