Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2010

Summer. It’s a time of sun, fun, bikinis and…bike thieves. This concept from designer Steve Hunt looks just like a halo. It’s designed so that the connector cable is housed within the frame of the lock itself, which makes it harder for thieves to cut your cable.

We have talked about the Jabra Halo headphones before. Jabra first announced the Halo back in April. The company has now announced that the headphones will be sold exclusively through Best Buy stores.
