    I know it might sound weird, an augmented reality earbuds? but that's what the Here One are, basically are wireless earbuds that can stream music and also augment the sounds of the world around you.



    This is how the manufacturer describes it:

    Here One was created by Doppler Labs, a company founded in 2013 with the mission to make computing more immersive and more human. Here One is the result of years of work and is Dopplers first widely-available product. Through two wireless smart earbuds and a connected app, Here One redefines the way we engage with sound through technology.


    When the Here Ones are ready to ship, they should have some interesting capabilities beyond the basic mixture of audio streaming and manipulation. Doppler Labs today also announced some key partnerships with various sports teams, museums, and organizations that should encourage some interesting use cases for the Here Ones AR capabilities.

    One partnership is with the New York Philharmonic, which will work with Doppler Labs to provide custom audio commentary for Here One users that will be layered perfectly over the performance. The company has also struck a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Mets to enable real-time, play-by-play sports commentary, scores, and stats for users. Other partners include JetBlue, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and Gimlet Media.

    Turns out that the not very known Here One's were rewarded by Times Magazine (2015) and won Best of Show at South By Southwest (2016).

    So it's something interesting to take a look once in awhile.

    This AR earbuds combined with some AR glasses and a PC backpack (because to be really a super power it will need a lot of computing horse power) could be something good to be on the streets doing some magic tricks.
