I got some really nice gift for Christmas, but one of my favorites is one I couldn’t resist buying for myself.
It’s fairly common for our department to have multiple people listening to audio on a computer at any time. We can, in some cases, take the headphones out and listen to the audio through the speakers. But that’s bothersome to some of our coworkers.
So during some of my last minute shopping, I saw a “robot headphone splitter” at Cost Plus World Market in Tracy.
The store also had little heart splitters. I thought that one was cheesy.
The robot is pretty awesome. It’s head comes off and connects into the audio jack on our computer. Then each person can put a pair of headphones into the robot’s eyes. His little body protects the main jack. A little tether keeps the pieces together.
I was excited to try it out today. Then I realized I left it at home. (The photo comes from my iPhone, I sent it to a friend after I bought it.)
Sure, you can buy regular headphone splitters. This one, though, is a conversation piece.
