Meet Pinn, Launchboom's clip-on wearable for taking calls and getting notifications

Pinn even has an analog headphone jack, in case your smartphone doesn't.

Think of Launchboom’s new wearable Pinn like the love child of a smartwatch and a Bluetooth headset.

The little gadget that clips to your clothing has a single wireless earbud you can detach to take calls, and it can notify you of text messages and email. The companion app lets you customize which smartphone notifications you want to receive, and they scroll by on the small OLED screen.

Pinn also acts as a Bluetooth shutter for taking photos, and a remote control for your music. Oh, and if your latest smartphone doesn’t have a headphone jack for some insane reason, the Pinn does. You can plug your favorite headphones into Pinn, then stream music from your phone. There’s no onboard storage for keeping music on the Pinn itself.

Pinn will retail for $199 when it ships the first week of February, and Launchboom will be taking preorders on Kickstarter at a discount.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
