Sgnl’s body conducting Bluetooth wristband is oddly compelling

Samsung’s C-Lab hibernator for unusual projects seemed faintly ridiculous when we first saw its fruits a few years back, but one project has graduated and is about to hit the market.

Sgnl gives the Bluetooth headset a twist by transmitting the sound through vibrations of your hand.

To hear the person calling, you jab your finger to your ear.

It seemed a little odd – even if it did indeed work – back when we saw it in prototype form in 2016, but clearly enough people were swayed for it to get the green light.

Now, Sgnl is expected to begin shipping to crowdfunding backers in March, with general availability shortly thereafter.

Well, assuming by “best” you mean “a pretty oversized black metal band.”
