Outdoor tech has just announced the availability of the CHIPS, a wireless drop-in audio system that works universally in all helmets with audio ready liners. You can finally listen to your music or take a quick call free of cords, with your phone in your pocket and your gloves on your hands.  Finally eh?

The patent pending control interface is simple to use and has no exposed buttons.  All you do is tap the tactile buttons from the exterior of the helmet liner to control volume, track skipping, and play/pause and answer calls.
