Live in the moment but stay integrated with smart connect


ver missed an awesome moment and wished you had your camera out? Are you in the middle of doing something you can’t stop but need to update or track something?

We’re excited to introduce smart connect, available in stores today, live life in the moment but never miss a beat.

What is smart connect?

smart connect is the world’s smallest and most advanced wearable device on the market today. It’s designed to record what you see, hear, smell, feel and think without interrupting your day.

With it’s patent-pending telescopic-microlens, you can capture 4K video at 60fps. See something funny? Just think “Suzy would like this” and it’ll automatically send Suzy a pic. smart connect features a state-of-the-art microphone so anything you hear is stored and available instantly at 5.1 Surround Sound.


We’re excited to introduce a new microchip designed to process and record the scents around you and interpret them using an algorithmic processor based on your individual taste buds. It might take a couple days to calibrate but then it’ll work like magic.

Finally, smart connect features a patented neural-processing chip designed from the ground up to understand what you’re thinking. The first-of-its-kind nCHIP can interpret far more than just your emotions. If you’re craving chocolate chip cookies, it knows what bakery you’re craving them from. For the first time in history, technology truly helps you on its own.

There's also a host of other microchips to sense things like light, color, exposure, proximity, thermometer, humidity, IR transmitter, Bluetooth


After a year long on-the-road beta testing period, we’re excited to release two smart connect models: M and P. Both are designed to stay hidden even when mounted in plain sight on your face. Model M is designed for the look conscious individual and is priced at $99. Model P is designed for the cost sensitive consumer & teens and is priced at $79. We’re offering both models at our launch price of $49.


What’s the battery life like?

Everyone who works with mobile and wearable devices knows how important it is to build a low energy battery-powered device. smart connect takes this proposition one step further. After setting up smart connect, you’ll never need to charge it. smart connect features a revolutionary energy conversion mechanism to convert the heat from your skin into power. In fact, smart connect is so energy efficient, you can even power it when you’re freezing your butt off on the slopes. Who’s gonna be the first person to take smart connect up to everest?

What’s next?

The current version of smart connect is water resistant. Like many watches, it’s okay to wear smart connect in the rain, or when out and about. We’re currently working on a waterproof prototype. We can’t wait to see what happens when you take smart connect onto your Slip’N Slide!
