OnBeep Launches Star Trek-Esque Communicator Badges [Video]

onyx 1

If you’ve ever longed for a communicator badge like the ones worn by characters in Star Trek, then OnBeep has a product for you called Onyx. They’ve made what is essentially a small, clip-on walkie talkie that you can wear near your face instead of attaching to a pocket on your pants. You need a smart phone or mobile device with bluetooth and data access to run Onyx, and the lightweight gadget (just over 1.5 ounces) operates with a light touch. You just have to find the right place to clip it onto your shirt.

The first production run should get to customers in December.

See more photos and the launch video after the break.
