The Bluetrek Carbon is the world's first Bluetooth 3.0 headset to be made from real carbon fiber. The choice of material along with an incredibly thin boom mic make the the Bluetrek Carbon feel almost weightless. The headset just passed through the FCC today signaling a launch coming soon.

These days we're used to seeing carbon fiber film being placed on lots of things for the cosmetic effect, but the Bluetrek Carbon actually uses it as the integral component for its mic stem. The stem is also designed to be super thin much like a stir stick, measuring what looks to be around 2 to 3mm in diameter.

The earpiece itself is just big enough to fit a micro USB port. However they did manage to include an on/off button, in addition to the answer call button and a touch-and-hold volume adjuster. The headset is priced at $70 with a release date yet to be confirmed.
