  • Publication number: 20060234780
    Abstract: This invention is a wireless, speakerphone accessory that allows the user to be in either public or private communication with a remote electronic device like a mobile telephone. The accessory includes a detachable ear bud that can be worn in a user's ear so that only the user hears the audio signal being received. When the ear bud is coupled to the speakerphone accessory, the circuitry in the ear bud is used to control a loudspeaker and other components in the accessory so as to convert the combined device in to a speakerphone that may be heard by the user and others in his immediate vicinity. The speakerphone accessory optionally includes pockets for receiving rechargeable batteries, as well as utility pockets for holding spare components like ear sleeves. The invention not only offers the dual functionality of private and public operating modes, but serves as a self-retaining case to greatly reduce the chances that any of the components become lost.

  • Publication number: 20060177086
    Abstract: This invention is a wireless communication device, for example a hands-free speakerphone accessory for a mobile telephone, that includes a pair of flexible elongated tubular members capable of attaching to the stems of eyeglasses. When the apertures or lumens in the flexible elongated tubes are attached to the stems of eyewear, the wireless communication device acts both as a wireless communication device and as an eyewear retainer. An adjustable clasp member and second clasp member mounted on the flexible tubular members allow the wireless communication device to form a closed loop, so as to be mounted on a user's neck, or other object, like a sun visor or steering wheel of an automobile. In one embodiment, at least one loudspeaker is coupled to one of the tubular members, while a low-profile microphone is coupled to the other tubular member.
