Your hair extensions could save your life. Sound dramatic? Well, it kind of is, but in a mega sexy, super spy, Bond girl kind of way. Hairware is a new wearable technology that allows you to to operate your smartphone via, you guessed it, your hair.
How does it work? The extensions look just like any other extension you can buy at a salon or store. But instead of the average lock, Hairware extensions are plated with a super thin conductive material. When you touch that extension (like you’re casually stroking your hair) you change the material’s electric charge. That shift in electric charge is picked up by a micro-controller, which then communicates the message to your phone via Bluetooth.
