Smart hat can give you a head start
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 AtariLife.com to sign up as a beta tester on its contest page.
