Headphones that use bone conduction technology… by bone we mean your skull
Technology never ceases to amaze, and while we’re not quite to the futuristic times that were depicted in Back to the Future, society is definitely making much progress toward those days.
Today we have been blessed with another breathtaking invention that brings us one step closer to a newfound technological age.
The company Studio Banana Things has ripped a page straight out of every sci-fi tale ever told and created the Batband.
No, it has nothing to do with Batman before you comic book lovers get any ideas. This is purely a new way of experiencing all of your favorite music.
Making incredible use of bone conduction technology, earless headphones were designed with a new amount of convenience in mind, while still maintaining a consistent make throughout its development. The Batband does not operate the same way. Instead this marvel of modernism makes sound with the help of touch points that are situated near the temple. The result is clear transmission of sound to your inner ear, leaving your outer ear completely free to listen to the environment or people around you. Just imagine being able to listen to that new Avicii song while still holding a conversation with your best friend…. Mind blown
The band itself, unlike the divisive Google Glass, is very fashionable and sleek. Literally a band that sits above your ear, it is controlled by touchstrip commands, further echoing its convenience. In other words, you can take it wherever you want.
The Batband is available as Kickstarter project for backing. With a goal of $150,000 and a stellar $418,065 already collected (as well as over a month to go yet), this is definitely something that could be complimenting our next trip to Best Buy.
If you’d rather have the device in your hands though, the Batband is ready for pre-ordering on the Studio Banana Things website.
