Cynaps Takes Calls and Listens to Music with No Headphones or Wires

Cynaps is a project that is currently on consorts funding site Indiegogo. The project looks like a normal baseball hat, but has technology inside that allows you to listen to music and make and receive phone calls without needing headphones or a headset of any sort. The hat has a bone conducting speaker inside transmits audio directly to your ear via vibrations.

Under the bill, the hat has a microphone that allows you to talk on your phone hands-free and a control module. The control module allows you to answer and end calls as well as control tracks in your playlist. That project is seeking $20,000 in funding and has 30 days to go. If this sounds like an interesting product to you, you should go ahead and pledge money, so far they've raised under $400.

For $50, you can get a self-install kit with all the electronics you need to fit the system into your own hat or helmet. If you don't want to install the electronics yourself, $60 will get you a hat with all the electronic components pre-installed. The battery inside the device promises between 6 and 10 hours of talking and listening to music per charge.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
