Take a common or garden stethoscope, rip off the scope bit (or should that be the stetho bit?), whack in some electronic gubbins and you have, roughly speaking, the Bluetrek ST1.The A2DP-friendly lug stuffers will pipe tunes direct to your ear holes from a mobile or PC via the wireless magic of stereo Bluetooth. Take a phone call and it'll pause the MP3 action while you have a natter.The battery gives its all for nine solid hours of music playing before needing a top-up by USB. Alternatively it manages 19 hours of chit chat or 11 days just sitting around on standby.All in all a great improvement on the usual doctor's kit – though not so good at checking out heartbeats.
