Unboxing: Jawbone Era

What happens when you take the accelerometer controls out of a Wiimote and put them inside of a Bluetooth headset?

You get the Jawbone Era, a single-ear Bluetooth headset that features “shake” controls.

We’re told it’s as easy as shaking it four times to get the Era into pairing mode, an action which normally requires holding a button down well after turning it on and waiting.

It’s probably worth noting that this is one of the more unusual boxes we’ve seen as there are actually instructions to help you open the box.
