Cynaps is a discreet headset installed in a hat that lets you listen to music or take a phone call using vibrations sent directly to your inner ear.

Cynaps is a bluetooth-enabled headset discreetly installed in a baseball cap that uses bone conduction technology to enable the wearer to listen to music or take a phone call without the need for earphones.

Once it is paired to a mobile phone or PC, the sound is conducted directly into your inner ear through vibration.

Driving and cycling are listed as examples where Cynaps could be very useful, as you need to hear what's going on around you, which you can't do with normal bluetooth earpieces that cover your ear.
