Smart headphones called “Dash” have called themselves the first wireless ear buds in the world.
The Dash is currently billing itself as the first wireless ear buds to be available anywhere in the globe and these mobile devices depended on meeting their $260,000 Kickstarter funding goal to get there.
This new smart gadget will offer wearers fitness tracking, music, and even communication.
The Dash smart mobile devices have been created by BRAGI, a company based in Munich. They are ear bud style headphones that will provide a range of different wearable technology features and will communicate with smartphones. This, despite the fact that they consist only of two little buds that sit inside the ear. They will not require any wires to connect them to a handset in order to function.
The Dash mobile devices are capable of holding and playing back more than 1,000 music tracks.
The ear buds are fitted with several sensors that allow them to monitor the wearer’s movements as well as some of their biorhythms, so that it is possible for the user to be able to gauge how far he or she has traveled, oxygen saturation, heart rate, and even the amount of energy that has been spent through an activity.
Through Bluetooth technology, they can also be wirelessly connected to a smartphone so that the wearer will be able to receive and make cell phone calls without any need for an additional mic. Instead, they use a bone conduction microphone to allow this to be possible. The added benefit of this method is that it will isolate background noise for a higher quality audio communication.
A five-field capacitive sensor makes it possible for the Dash ear buds to be operated by way of touch. This means that everything from accepting and declining a call to changing the volume or accessing additional features can all be accomplished without any fumbling around. This will be especially appealing to athletes and others who are undergoing serious training. It allows them to leave their handsets behind while still taking advantage of many of the features that those mobile devices provide.
