The future of dropping out is here.

Novero will be at this year's Mobile World Congress with a new Bluetooth headset that will make you look like Geordi La Forge. The new Madison video eyewear connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, or to its own portable media player. This headset packs dual OLED displays, equivalent to watching a 30" display from 6 feet away.

There is a heads-up onscreen display, and you can control the Madison via either the media player or your own Bluetooth-enabled device. The Madison is Windows and Mac compatible, it will launch in Q2 for an estimated 249 euro. I wonder if you'll be able to play Winamp-style music visualizations over this thing.

Novero's products tend towards ridiculous decadence, so it doesn't surprise me that they're the first company to launch what amounts to a portable movie theater. Most of their other products are Bluetooth devices built into elegant jewellery and accompanied by necklaces and earrings. One product- TheTalkyOne, actually reads caller names aloud to you.

Once headsets like the Madison become common, people will have literally no reason to ever interact with one another. You've got your music for walking to your destination, and the Madison to help you blot out wherever you are once you get there. Finally, technology has given us a way to completely check out of our surroundings while also looking like you belong on the set of the new Star Trek movie.
