Spotted at CES 2010 and now finally available for purchase, Tunebug's Shake is a portable "sound generator" that turns any bike or snowboard helmet into a mobile speaker system.

With touch-sensitive controls and Bluetooth wireless compatibility, the Shake takes both the hassle and danger out of wearing earbuds with cords connected to an mp3 player. By simply placing two fingers on the control, the water-resistant Shake powers on emitting a decent amount of volume for personal surround sound.

The Shake also works when not in action or wirelessly connected, performing as a standard speaker by hooking up to iPods and mobile phones.

Now available online, the Shake sells for $100 from Tunebug or at select Apple stores.
