When I was young, it was my dream to become a spy. In the movies, they went on all these cool missions, knew crazy kung fu moves, and saved the world on a regular basis. Don’t even get me started on the cool gadgets they had! One of my favorites can be seen in the movie Agent Cody Banks (you should watch it if you haven’t already!), which was a watch you could use to talk to people! Well, thanks to the HOT Watch, I can own something just like that!
You see, the smartwatch is able to receive phone calls. You use it like you are holding an invisible phone. Say someone calls you. There is a small speaker on the watch that lets you hear the person’s voice and a tiny microphone that lets you talk back. While there are other smart watches similar to this one, their speakers play the voice out loud, so anyone can listen to your conversation. You don’t have to worry about that with HOT Watch, though.
The timekeeper comes with technology called “Hands on Talk,” or HOT. If you wear the gadget and cup your hand around your ear, sounds from the speaker bounce off your palm and directly to your ear. The sound is too low to be heard by anyone but you, like a normal cell phone, so nosy eavesdroppers can’t listen to your conversation.
The watch can do other things like recieve e-mails, texts, weather updates, and news from Facebook and Twitter! The watchmakers are currently raising money for this sweet piece of tech on Kickstarter.
