The majority of science fiction fans are going to love the new CommBadge for iPhone and Android, which looks like something right out of Star Trek. This project is currently on Indiegogo and has raised just under $27,000 at the time of writing, although the target is $85,000 with 17 days to go.
What is CommBadge? This gadget is basically a wearable Bluetooth speakerphone and also an alternative to Bluetooth headsets. The device can be used with both Android and iPhone, and can be attached to your clothing really easy. The main features include the latest chipset for noise canceling, full access to voice command functions within Google Now and Siri, the ability to place and answer calls, and also send and receive text messages with text-to-speech.
CommBadge will extend the technology found in your smartphone and you only need to tap to answer, just like we remember in Star Trek. The device is designed for both personal and business use. You will find three models to choose from, which include one for casual use, one with a badge holder, and finally another model with a built-in retractable badge wheel. The video below delivers a visual look at each of these models.
Would you prefer a standard Bluetooth headset, or does the CommBadge Star Trek-style communicator look a much better option? Watch the video below to learn more about the CommBadge, and then leave your thoughts in the comments.
