Kickstarter: Yono Earphones

Recently, wearable technologies have found more and more innovative ways to incorporate headphone usage into health monitoring and other forms of tracking and interaction. Engineers at Yono have developed an in-ear that measures a number of vital signs to help young women know when is the best time to conceive. The device logs this data to a smartphone via the Yono app. The Yono has already raised over $20,250 toward its $30,000 kickstarter goal.

Event News: Rocky Horror Lincoln Center Headphone Screening

When I was a Resident Assistant in college, I had an idea to have an extremely late party that would be fun and still respect quiet hours. I came up with the idea of streaming to my residents' phones and having everyone wear headphones. Unfortunately, I never got to put that event on. The Lincoln Center seems to have seized my concept in order to allow a recent screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show to adhere to city ordinances prohibiting amplified sound after 10PM. The event handed out sets of headphones which would connect to a stream of audio for the movie. Innovative uses of headphones like this truly help connect media consumers. Hopefully we'll see this type of event cross genres and media forms in the future.
