Smart hat can give you a head start

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - YOUTH -

CHICAGO — Atari has in­vaded the realm of fash­ion with their new­est in­no­va­tion, the Speak­er­hat. It has teamed up with Au­diowear to de­sign and cre­ate the new wear­able tech, which they de­buted on the San Diego Comic-Con show floor.

The base­ball-style cap comes with its own stereo speak­ers in­side the bill of the cap. The Speak­er­hat boasts a light­weight de­sign that al­lows users to wear it for ex­tended pe­ri­ods of time.

The hat also comes with a built-in mi­cro­phone that can con­nect to de­vices via Blue­tooth.

Play­ing mu­sic or au­dio through the hat is as easy as con­nect­ing to any nearby com­puter, smart­phone or tablet to stream au­dio con­tent.

The hat can do pretty much any­thing you can do with other Blue­tooth-en­abled de­vices, mean­ing it can also send and re­ceive phone calls and re­spond to voice com­mands. And it comes with a recharge­able lithium ion bat­tery.

What re­ally makes it unique is its patented So­cial Syn­chronous Broad­cast tech­nol­ogy, which al­lows for mul­ti­ple hat wear­ers to lis­ten to the same au­dio con­tent si­mul­ta­ne­ously, elim­i­nat­ing the need to share ear­buds with friends and al­low­ing ev­ery­one with the hat to en­joy the same au­dio ex­pe­ri­ence to­gether.

There will be mul­ti­ple hats avail­able this fall. There will also be hats based on pop­u­lar Atari fran­chises.

The hat is cur­rently in beta. If you wish to par­tic­i­pate in the cap’s devel­op­ment process, you can log on to Atar­ to sign up as a beta tester on its con­test page.
