BOLD STATEMENTIt felt good to be the only guy running the trails of Boulder, Colorado, sans flapping headphone wires. In a wild science project, Oakley pimped out a pair of its Half Jacket sunglasses by tucking a 256MB flash-memory-based player in the stems and adding flip-up lenses. Phones slide directly into the ear, and the sounds of music are very sweet indeed.

Bonus: Earphone booms fit multiple ear sizes.

Bummer: The Universal Soldier look isn’t for everyone.
