Yes, a rare event here, something that could be regarded as work related, in a sense. And yet, in a sense, its the perfect item for a mind controller to use, the telephonist’s headset, and for me at least, one of the annoyances in work life.
Yes, you’ve probably seen them, the headband type, with one earpiece, and a microphone that supposedly sits in front of your mouth, so you can speak to the customers at the same time as listening to them. Not literally of course, but you know what I mean? If you keep your head facing forward, looking at the computer, then yes, they are fine. Well, fine might be a bit generous, but they get by lol! For someone with a decent amount of hair like myself, they can still come off at the slightest opportunity, because they really arent tight to my head.
But where my ‘fun’ really starts is when I’m on the escalated desk, dealing with other issues, as well as calls. This requires you to look down at paperwork, then lift your head to either check details, or input information onto the computer. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it doesnt take much movement for the headset to slide off my head! To be honest, most others using the desk just grab the phone in their left hand, and type with their right, rather than using a headset in the first place. The snag is for me, I’m left handed, and you cant hold the phone, and type with the same hand lol!
So what I’m looking for is a cheap design that wont fall off your head at the slightest opportunity. So sorry, customising one of those cute cycle helmets probably wouldnt pass the price test for most, though it might still tempt me to get one anyway. But if anyone could design one of these headsets with more of a skullcap design, than that silly headband, well that would be perfect. In silver would earn bonus points, but in all honesty, I just want something that stays on my head.
So any designers out there, or anyone who knows a designer, think it over, and see what you can come up with. If it comes complete with mind controlling electrodes, thats a bonus, but that might need to be an exclusive design for me! 😉
The video, very loose connection, but as a tribute to mind control, and those lovely headsets and helmets involved in controlling people, here is
