Motorola and Oakley have announced the unveiling of O ROKR, the latest eyewear product to result from the companies’ focus on designing cutting-edge wireless products for the active consumer.
Like the first Bluetooth headset combined with a pair of sunglasses the: “O ROKR builds on the success that we’ve had with RAZRWIRE - the world’s first eyewear to combine patented Oakley optics with Motorola’s leadership in Bluetooth innovation”, said Bruce Hawver, vice president and general manager, Companion Products Group, Motorola, Inc.
O ROKR uses the Bluetooth Stereo Music Profile (A2DP), which enables music to stream wirelessly from compatible products to the eyewear. At the touch of a button, a user can play or pause music and answer an incoming call. From the Motorola mobile handset line-up, O ROKR works with the newly unveiled Motorola ROKR E2 and the Motorola E680i.
The semi-rimless design means there is no frame rim to block downward view, and the optically pure Plutonite® lens material filters out 100% UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm.
O ROKR is expected to be available in the first half of 2006.
