Just curious, it looks pretty cool.

TERRIBLE IDEA!

There's already problems with cagers being distracted, now you wanna distract yourself by answering the phone, text, and/or tweet? Nothing is that vital that it can't wait for me to pull over at the next stop. Just my opinion on it though.

I like it. I always seem to get calls just after I've gloved up and I then have to remove my gloves to answer the phone. The other option is to get some conductive finger tips for the gloves. They are OK when stopped but I'm not sure about using them when moving.

I like it but my Uclear headset allows me to say "hello" or "answer" and it picks up the phone when I have an incoming call. For everything else I would just wait until I found a safe place to pull over at. But I love technology and think this thing is pretty neat.

Not a bad idea. My phone is blue toothed to my GPS, which is BT'd to my helmet so I can see and control it from the GPS, however this could be nice for those that can't. Common sense dictates when to take calls

Unless I was a world renowned heart surgeon on call, I wouldn't answer a telephone call while I was riding, except to say "call me later, I'm riding" and then hang up. I don't want to be occupying the same roads as riders who are on the phone being screamed at by their bosses/significant others/lovers with paternity test results/etc.

I can do all that with my Sena and iphone using siri and voice commands. Rare that I ever answer the phone while riding, but being able to make a call or answer hands free is kind of nice.
