What these ‘AirMuffs’ say about the future of technology – 10minmail
These newly released wireless Bluetooth headphones from Seattle startup Human are getting mixed reviews for their appearance, and their initial starting price of $399 (which the company quickly dropped to a promotional price of $259 after seeing the initial reaction).
But their unique design, which completely envelops both ears, reflects a vision of the future in which technology will be melded to our bodies, and potentially to our minds.
At least, that’s where our discussion takes us on this episode of the 10minmail Podcast, after managing editor Taylor Soper brings a pair of the new Human headphones into the studio — and after reporter Kurt Schlosser got done teasing Taylor about how he looked with them on.
CNET dubbed the Human headphones “AirMuffs,” and we wondered why the company didn’t use that as the product name. But with Elon Musk and others looking to a future when AI and humans become one, it’s interesting to see a new device that takes its cues from the human body.
Plus: Jeff Bezos’ first Amazon job ad, 25 years later; a new Netflix documentary will go inside the mind of Bill Gates; Alexa makes an awkward “Jeopardy!” cameo; and like everyone else on the Internet this week, it seems, we can’t wait to try the new Popeyes chicken sandwich.
