Yes, stroller speakerphones are actually a real thing

By Staff writers | 8:58 am 19/01/2013

Spotted at CES was one of the more unusual uses for a Bluetooth speakerphone, though we were intrigued, and the more people we tell about it, the more people tell us that it makes sense.

Created by an audio company we don’t have in Australia, the Nyne NB-200 grabbed our attention because it has been designed to attach to the handlebars of a bicycle.

Interestingly, it’s not just for the bicycle, with a demo unit sitting at the stand showing how it could be used for strollers.

Parents could push a pram down the road, unfettered and just talking in the general direction they’re pushing.

Nyne make a few types of audio products, including docks and speakers, but we haven’t seen something like this in Australia yet, and while we doubt Nyne will arrive on this side of the planet this year, can imagine there would be other manufacturers willing to go the extra mile for people with prams.
