Everyone loves listening to their favorite songs within the privacy of headphones. However, when worn in public, this enjoyment can come at a dangerous price. Once you plug in you drown out the sounds around you; traffic, pedestrians and other warnings become muffled and all but disappear and you are left in possible peril. However, with the Batband Headphones, these dangers are a thing of the past.
Using the latest tech in bone conduction (yes, that’s a thing) these unique headphones do not rest on your ears, or even in them. You simply place the touch-sensitive semicircular band around the back of your head and the sound is transferred – literally – into your head. The “noise bleed”, or how well others can hear your music, is surprisingly little. The best part is that your ears are open all the while and there is nothing between your safety and your music. Pre-order now on their Kickstarter for $149.00 before they retail for $250.00!
If you are using your iPhone to play that music and controlling it through your fancy new Apple Watch, you’ll love Nomad Goods’ new Pod Pro portable battery pack. Not only does it charge your iPhone but it also doubles as a wireless charging pad for your Apple Watch! Small and easy to slip into any bag or purse, the Pod Pro is sure to become something you take with you everywhere. $79.99
No matter how high-tech the world becomes there will always be a place for a good old-fashioned pen. Well, now the two worlds are meeting – and the result is surprisingly useful! The Livescribe 3 is a rollerball pen that captures every movement, letter and doodle and transfers it wirelessly to a tablet or computer. And with the new Moleskin Edition you can keep the timeless look of Moleskin journals while keeping a digital copy of all your important notes…and maybe even those silly doodles! $229.95.
