- Atari is not one to back down from any challenge as they've just recently made their return back into the hardware market, which as of late has been controlled by the likes of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. Atari just announced an exclusive partnership with leading action figure and collectibles maker NECA to introduce wearable technology products for BLADE RUNNER 2049, the hotly anticipated sequel to the legendary Ridley Scott directed sci-fi movie, coming to theaters on October 6, 2017.
- The first wave of all-new Atari Speakerhats, powered by Audiowear, the technology company creating next-generation individual and social audio experiences, debuts today and will be joined this fall by a Limited-Edition BLADE RUNNER 2049 Atari Speakerhat. The Speakerhat is a baseball-style cap with high-fidelity stereo speakers and microphone that can connect instantly to any Bluetooth-enabled device, enabling phone calls, audio/music, and voice control.
- The patented Speakerhat, combined with Multiplayer Mode, will enable multiple Speakerhat users to simultaneously listen to a single audio stream in perfect synchronization, a fundamentally new social audio experience. The Limited-Edition Atari BLADE RUNNER 2049 Speakerhat will ultimately be joined by a variety of Atari-branded lifestyle products such as high-tech wearables and apparel based on its popular IP, as well as various audio and gaming gadgets.
