The Speakerhat has actual speakers in the bill of the cap.
Powered by Audiowear, the patented Speakerhat technology is a new listening experience, combined with Social Synchronous Broadcast technology, will allow multiple Speakerhat users to simultaneously listen to a single audio stream in ideal synchronization.
Atari is blending fashion and wearables with the debut of Speakerhats, or baseball caps with audio speakers built into the visor.
The Atari Speakerhat features downwards firing speakers right on the cap's visor. Since the speakers point downward, others can't really hear the sounds from the speakers at lower volumes.More news: Easy charm evident in 'Girls Trip' to The Big Easy
No wonder as yet on when Atari is going to make the Speakerhat available for purchase and how much it's going to cost. Atari calls this a "fundamentally new social audio experience".
Atari promises that the upcoming Speakerhat will eventually let consumers connect to other hats and listen in on the same stream, providing users with a unique alternative to having to share earbuds or headphones. It's not clear whether users can swap the tech into a different SpeakerHat, but the components look pretty integrated from the pictures.
Atari CEO Fred Chesnais did say back at E3 that the Speakerhat is part of the company strategy to revive the Atari brand.
