New headset design needed

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

A home suitable for a robot

Some people swear by MSN and Hotmail, others swear at them, but sometimes they have their uses, whatever your views. Me, I have it as my homepage, and most of my email is Hotmail, but thats as much being not one for changing what works (of sorts at least).

Anyway, enough about them, this blog is due to an item that I found there, and nothing more. To avoid anyone the trauma of visiting MSN, the actual website link is http://www.simondale.net/house/index.htm or if having problems, try it without the index.htm bit.

Yes, I know, this is a house for a hobbit, just about as far away as you can get from a house for a robot of the future, but it had me thinking as to what a house for a robot should be like, and wouldnt it be fun to see an architect design one, and the fitting out of it? Of course design would depend on whether its a genuine robot, or just a human living as one of course.

The former wouldnt need a kitchen, or indeed a proper bed, just room to stand in their charging pod overnight, and that would be it. It would almost certainly need good wi-fi connections, some sort of communication outlet, and thats probably it. But yes, you’re right, this isnt about the true robot, this is about someone, ooh, like me maybe, living in a robot style.

I’m looking at either a studio type apartment, or at most a 1 bedroom apartment as being ideal for the role. Simple to minimalist decoration style would be the right feel, after all robots are practical creatures, and alright, so am I pretty much anyway. Somewhere to sit down, complete with table or two, standard communication devices (TV, phone, computer of some kind) and heating to keep her warm in winter. Oh, and maybe a few electrical points lol!

I guess any modern kitchen look fits the role, its hard to change much about that, beyond a metallic decor maybe? Bathroom really would shout shower cubicle over bath as more suitable, but us more mature robots do like to be able to lay down and relax a few tired muscles. So unless the body is actually being upgraded lol…? Bedroom look would be the fun one, especially designing a bed that really looked like a charging unit I think. Alright, I couldnt actually plug myself in at night, but making it look like I was…Of course there is nothing to stop said robot being able to slip her head into a helmet, or chamber at night of course? 😉

The outside look of an apartment has to be sleek, modern, and I guess silver, or metallic at least would be good. Not sure what planning permission people would say about silver, but anyway… But thats trickier that the internal design, so lets think more about that side of it, in terms of creation. I think it would be great fun to live like a robot, certainly as an experiment, if nothing else. I suspect living somewhere so designed could quickly get me into a robot mindset anyway. Equally though, I suspect its one of those things that will always only be a dream, and never come to fruition.  Guess I would have to wear a silver bodysuit at all times then when indoors lol! Who, me, like that thought, no idea why you think that? 😉

A real silver bodysuit

I dont deny being the owner of a few silver zentai suits in my time, here is a picture of me in one of them

Some might have seen it a while back, but for others it will be something new. And beyond the avvie pic here, its all you’re getting for now lol!

Agreed, I havent actually worn any of them for a while, its the one change that seems to have come about because my days off are not always in pairs anymore, and therefore time to chill as a robot is harder to come by. The main snag for that with a zentai suit is the obvious one you can tell from the picture, you cant do a lot else while wearing one. Visibility is restricted, even more so when you need glasses like I do to see much. And obviously the sense of touch is affected too, fine for a robot, but not so good for getting things done, shall we say. Typing in a mittened hand is bad enough, try do things around the house while wearing one lol! Obviously this robot doesnt need to be restrained at all times, but if anyone wants to do so, and either ‘plug me in’, or ‘upgrade my programming’, well I might not say no!

I know some know my loving for the fantasy at least of wearing latex, and yes, a silver latex catsuit would be wonderful. But given the time needed to get into latex, plus my figure, and maturity, well its not that viable lol! Zentai is in fact very comfortable to wear, and quite good material, even if some would say a bit soft for a robot. Might be better with a metal(lic) breast plate attached, though how possible that is, I havent a clue? Eye slits, and a mouth opening (zip or plain opening) would be handy extra touches for long term wear too. oh, and a crotch opening of course, that was usually the factor that brought a robot session to an end in all honesty! Clearly if it looked like a certain robot from Metropolis, so much the better, but thats just being greedy! Skull cap type headpiece (with or without electrodes, functional or otherwise) would certainly be fun within the suit too.

Dont know how practical the idea is, I guess thats why I’m tossing it up here, just in case someone knows someone, or otherwise? Cost, you tell me, for the perfect robot suit I could live in for decent periods of time, and get on with life, well its worth a bit, so…but cant deny it, there are times when I do miss not just being able to slip into a silver ‘robot’ suit, let the mind relax, and let the suit take control of me. Oh, alright, the last item is pure fantasy, but would be fun.

Any designers out there, or know anyone who could customise such a suit for me? Would make a fantastic Christmas present to myself, I must admit.
