The world of headphones is about to change now that the Buhel SG05 Soundglasses are having a very successful Kickstarter campaign. For the first time ever, a pair of eyeglasses is doubling as headphones thanks to the use of bone-conductive technology.
Wikipedia explains Bone conduction as the “conduction of sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull. Bone conduction transmission can be used with individuals with normal or impaired hearing.” Bone conductive technology can be used for music, GPS instructions, and phone calls.
According to the Kickstarter campaign, the Buhel SG05 Soundglasses are capable of:
*Making and receiving phone calls via Bluetooth.
*Listening to music without earphones or earbuds.
*Activating SIRI / with a touch of a button.
*Communicating with GPS Systems .
The Buhel SG05 Soundglasses retail at $260. If you donate to the Kickstarter campaign, you can get them for $160. Hurry, you only have a few more days.
