For whatever reason, back in early December, the ceiling lights at work have started giving me headaches which occasionally escalate into migraines, this is not ideal.  We have a very helpful facilities team at work but I though I’d just find a workaround myself, as I like wearing hats this seemed an easy one to fix.

Behold, Keegan’s Hat of Migraine Prevention!


I poked a small hole inside the headband at the back to allow a headphone cable to pass through and clipped my trusty Bluetooth receiver to it which I used in a previous hack.  I now have something that blocks out light and lets me control what I hear.  This helps no end and people are used to me being a bit odd so no-one has batted an eyelid.

That being my summer hat and weather taking a turn for the worse I’ve adapted my old Fedora so that when I’m out in town I have music too.  When things are busy having music to listen too to dull the noise of the crowd really does help.  The odd thing is I now need to remember to charge my hat…


A simple and daft pair of hacks that have actually helped a great deal.
