Brandon Goodwin has taken to Kickstarter this week with the aim of raising $100,000 to help take his new blipcast hardware to market, which has been designed to and wireless connectivity to any wired headphones.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about this small device that can provide you with the ability to unleash yourself from needing to use wireless to listen to your favourite movies or audio.
Goodwin explains a little more about the inspiration behind the blipcast hardware :
One person’s entertainment (dance-competition reality show) can be another person’s noise. And that other person’s entertainment (extra-inning playoff night game) can cause my wife to calmly and lovingly ask if I even need to “hear the game” to understand what’s going on.
Maybe you have roommates. Or a sleeping baby in the next room over. Or maybe your kids are old enough to repeat certain words, but not old enough to know not to say them in front of your in-laws. In any case, we all have situations where individualized audio would come in handy.
Until now, the only solution has been bulky, single-user, wireless TV headsets with ugly transmitters that need to be re-charged and left sitting out. So we set out to make a simpler and more elegant solution to this problem, for people who want to watch TV at full volume without disturbing others
