San Francisco-based technology company OnBeep introduced Onyx, a new wearable voice communication device that allows groups to comunicate each other like Captain Picard in the Star Trek series. Onyx lets users connect with each other without having to look down at their phone. Weighing just 46 grams, the small, lightweight device can be clipped to a shirt, jacket or bag strap so users can enjoy heads-up communication virtually anywhere.
Onyx connects to the OnBeep app on a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth, delivering instant communication over wireless and cellular networks across any distance. The app lets users create and manage groups on the fly, and team members can share their location on a map, making it easy to keep track of each other in real-time. Onyx works with both iOS and Android smartphones, providing users on both platforms a new, simple way to connect with each other with the push of a button. Onyx is available for a limited time at $99 for one or $195 for you and a friend. Preorders are available now at OnBeep.com and will ship later this year.
