The concept behind the Ionic Ear was not with out advantage. Sporting Bluetooth headphones can generally be an actual ache, and transferring with them has a excessive likelihood of the cans getting jostled round, disturbing your listening expertise. Inventor Darrin Johnson wished to resolve this problem completely and got here up with the concept of a Bluetooth gadget that was to be surgically connected to the human ear. The Ionic Ear was meant to remain in your ear securely and included a microphone and a receiver, similar to most Bluetooth headphones.
The primary catch got here with how the gadget was to be implanted in a human ear. It required surgical procedure to put in, and the gadget could be affixed contained in the ear canal. For the reason that gadget is clearly wi-fi, it could additionally require common charging. This implies you will need to join the gadget inside your ear canal to a wall outlet and keep put for a number of hours.
Johnson got here in wanting a $1 million funding in change for 15% of the corporate. The surgical requirement and the outright unbelievability of the product left the investor panel unimpressed. Robert Herjavec, the one Shark keen to listen to the pitch, hilariously acknowledged, “Darrin, this is madness, this is genius… you are someplace.”
