The Dash plays music from a 4GB music player or through a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone. The smart in ear headphones tracks movements (e.g. pace, steps, cadence, distance) and measures heart rate, oxygen saturation and energy spent. As a Bluetooth headset it delivers sound through an ear bone microphone. It provides noise isolation, but the wearer can choose to channel ambient sound with the transparent audio feature. Safety and peace of mind come from awareness of your surroundings.

The world of Her is decidedly in the camp of user centric design – a future where people are more important than a flashy new toy. The movie seems to reconcile a future where one single operating system powers your phone, work computer, home computer, household, and is connected with your gaming system and knows to turn your lights on and off as you enter.

BabelFisk A visual Hearing Aid    The BabelFisk works by converting the sound to text on the fly...  Given that the product has 2 microphones built in, it also addresses the issue of where the sound is coming from, helping the wearer to adapt in a 3D environment that sound creates. Also the product could be great to use for dictation at meetings etc – saving files on flash memory in both audio and text format for easy retrieval after meeting, downloadable via mini-USB.
