The term "coconut headsets" refers to a behavior of theACargo Cults. These cults are usually tribal people who were exposed to military forces of major countries during a war.
Famous examples of cargo cult activity include the setting up of mock airstrips, airports, offices, dining rooms, as well as the fetishization and attempted construction of western goods, such as radios made of coconuts and straw. Believers may stage "drills" and "marches" with sticks for rifles and use military-style insignia and "USA" painted on their bodies to make them look like soldiers, thereby treating the activities of western military personnel as rituals to be performed for the purpose of attracting the cargo. The cult members built these items and 'facilities' in the belief that the structures would attract cargo intended to be sent to them. This perception reportedly has been reinforced by the occasional success of an 'airport' to attract military transport aircraft full of cargo.
Ultimately, in the argument about work and how it should be done, one has only one's pleasures to offer. It is possible … to be in one's place, in such company, wild or domestic, and with such pleasure, that one cannot think of another place that one would prefer to bea€" or of another place at all. One does not miss or regret the past, or fear or long for the future. Being there is simply all, and is enough. Such times give one the chief standard and the chief reason for one's work. -AWendell Berry, "Economy and Pleasure" (Continue reading the article by clicking the link below)

And to make a product really matter, McClure says, entrepreneurs need to "tap into the reptilian psyche" of consumers.

White Cloud was commissioned by the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with Cleveland Public Art. The project was selected from approximately two dozen ideas to become the backdrop for the museum's annual Summer Solstice party, which attracts over 5,000 people.
CPA and artist Mark Reigelman spent nearly two weeks constructing White Cloud, which appeared to float against the exterior of the ceremonial entrance to the Cleveland Museum of Art. Comprised of nearly 100 eight-foot weather balloons, a dozen 22-foot steel poles, and rope, White Cloud was a soft, organic complement to the symmetrical grandness of the Museum. When the wind blew, the balloons appeared to dance precariously above the ground, in stark contrast to the sturdiness of the Museum's marble walls. White Cloud was spectacularly lit by local lighting designers at Vincent Lighting.
