Kickstarter of the Day: Batband


The latest Kickstarter from London-based Studio Banana Things offers a futuristic headset that will allow you to “hear twice as much,” or at least stay connected to the world around you while privately enjoying your favourite podcast or Booooooom mix.

The proposed Batband device works by transmitting sound through the bones of your skull, as opposed to traditional sound-devices that plug/cover your ears.

I can honestly say that I would never wear this, but the idea is really interesting. Learn more below!
