I think we need smarter headphones. Imagine for a minute if we can break away from the phone and what a smarter headphone would be able to do.
- Wireless charging
- Has it's own WiFi or mobile data
- Download podcasts and music on device
- Better voice controls on device
- Smart lock and unlock on voice signature
- Fingerprint unlock
I don't know I'm just thinking. These maybe a stretch for earbuds but for overhead headphones not impossible.
