Zungle Inc., a tech start-up from LA, has designed and developed a new form of wearable technology for all those who like to listen music when they’re out and are big fan of stylish sunglasses. The project, called Zungle Panther includes sunglasses with built in bone conduction speakers which enables to transmit sound waves to the skull via vibrations. It’s currently on Kickstarter, and has already reached well over double its funding goal.
Zungle Panther can be paired with your smartphone. Listening a music and answering phone call are available through bluetooth. The jog dial placed on the right leg is straightforward enough for you to master the functions without a manual.
Zungle Panther doesn’t give up appealing aesthetics for technology: the USB port is hidden and built-in. It praises long hours of music play. 4 hours of music play with maximum sound output is available with only 1 hour of charging.
Zungle made sure its lenses are the same size as Oakley Frogskins, so if you’re into that look, you can easily pop any vivid shade you please into the frames. Zungle’s Kickstarter campaign for Panther is out in the open, with $89 pre-orders already available. If you like what you see, you should hurry up, because their retail price is expected to reach $149. The estimated delivery is November this year.
