Star Trek fans that have alway dreamed of owning their own communicator, might be interested in this new device called the CommBadge which has been inspired by the communicators used within the Star Trek series and been deigned to replace the need for Bluetooth headsets.
CommBadge has been designed to link to both Android and iOS smartphones, providing hands and eye free access to both Google Now and Apple’s Siri personal assistant.
As in the Star Trek TV series and movies, you simply use your voice to send messages, make phone calls, schedule meetings and more. Its creators explain a little more:
“Frankly, if your like us, you really hate wearing Bluetooth headsets. Most are uncomfortable and annoying, especially when worn for extended periods. CommBadge is a great Bluetooth headset replacement and much more.
CommBadge is a patent pending wearable Bluetooth LE speakerphone for iPhone and Android, measuring just 1.54″ (39.1mm) in diameter. It uses the latest DSP audio SoC (system on a chip) to minimize background noise. By combining proprietary directional and personalized speaker technology, CommBadge brings you crystal clear handsfree communication. It’s simple to use, yet amazingly convenient! You’ll be able to customize CommBadge with the free companion apps coming soon.”
The CommBadge project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Features include:
– Place and answer calls ears-free
– Send and receive text messages (“text-to-speech” through CommBadge)
– Use your phone’s native voice commands, such as Siri and Google Now to set calendar events, timers and reminders, get sports news, and search for information
– Receive an alert from the Wireless Tether feature that you left your smartphone behind
– Be notified of incoming calls, texts, calendar and social media events with customizable voice prompts, vibration, sound, and LED’s
– And more, all hands and eyes-free!
