Bluetooth Headset inside a [toy] Handgun

MayorMike, inspired by the article I wrote for Make vol. 20 (Retro Wireless Handset), stuck a bluetooth headset in a plastic toy gun to create his Handgun Bluetooth Earpiece Project.  The best part – the earphone is located at the end of the barrel, so to answer a call, you stick it up to your ear.  Genius.

The innards are shown below.

Nice work, MayorMike!  May I suggest that you pair this with a Hand Grenade MP3 Player?

Retro Wireless Handset featured as Make: Weekend Project

In this week’s Make: Weekend Project, KipKay shows us how to turn a Bluetooth headset into a retro-styled wireless handset.

This project is based on the ‘Retro Wireless Handset’ article I wrote for Make: magazine volume 20.

KipKay also posted a pdf version of the article so now you can read about this project even if you’re not a Make: subscriber.
