What you’re looking at is a wearable gadget that goes by the name of Senstone. It qualifies as one of world’s smallest and also one of the most useful wearables out there. The gadget serves one function; keeping track of your ideas, to-do lists and notes while the user is on the go. What does the gadget do exactly? It records voice memos that are uploaded to an app and transcribed for the user. The gadget launched on Kickstarter recently with an aim of raising $50,000.
Senstone records voice notes followed by uploading them on an app in your iPhone. Simply push a button on the side of the gadget and press it again when you wish to stop recording.
The gadget has been designed to enable users to ‘capture things in daily life that they don’t want to miss’. This includes goals, ideas or notes. Instead of taking out your phone and typing a note, Senstone allows you to type a note by simply talking.
Senstone pairs with the phone using Bluetooth and syncs up with the companion app. It automatically uploads your recordings to the app.
Senston’s cool feature is it being capable of recording offline and storing the notes in the device and upon coming online, the recordings are uploaded to your smartphone. Who is this gadget for? Brainstormers who like to come up with ideas while on the go.
Senstone can be clipped onto your collar.
It can also be worn as a necklace.
Or used as a wristband.
Senstone is capable of taking dictations in 11 languages that include Ukrainian and Mandarin.
It is capable of recording up to one minute at a time for now. However, it will be able to, eventually, record for up to 4 hours offline and for longer when it has been paired with the phone.
It can be charged using the charging dock that can be connected to any USB port. The battery timing is good; you won’t need to charge it even after a week on a daily use basis.
Senstone keeps the original note along with the transcribed note for you with labels such as time, date and location.
You can even add a category tag to the note by saying ‘hashtag’ and category (personal, work, business etc.) before you end the note.
If it is unable to understand the recording, it will not transcribe it but rather just save the recording for you.
Users can also delete the notes that they don’t need and can also share notes with others.
The gadget is still in its early phases and is slated to incorporate another microphone for reducing background noise and to capture the sound of user in a more efficient manner.
Early backers of Senstone’s Kickstarter campaign can get their hands on the aluminum or plated brass versions for a pledge of $80.
