If you lose your AirPods on a regular basis then meet AirBand it is a new silicon band for the Apple Watch that can also work as a holder for your AirPods, with two loops placed below the Apple Watch screen. It will work with both the AirPods and the AirPods Pro.
The design and concept sound actually look somewhat silly. When using it, your AirPods are just hanging there out in the open for everyone to see, and they can’t charge them while in the loops. AirPods also come with a pocket-sized charging case, meaning AirPods owners already have something portable to store them in and charge them.
Matt Youngblood, the project’s creator, said the new upcoming merchandise is supposed to serve as a temporary AirPods holder in situations when the case isn’t the best solution or you have to put them somewhere on a fly. “There are often times where the AirPod case just isn’t convenient,” Youngblood said. The Kickstarter video shows a few potential places the band could come in handy, like when you are paying for something at the store, or working or talking to someone and you want to put them somewhere temporarily.
The project is being funded on Kickstarter with the aim of $10,000. Youngblood says that the product has already been tested and has a manufacturer selected. He’s turning to Kickstarter to get the funding for the supplies needed to start production on the product. If you want to back the project, you can pledge a min of $20 to obtain at least one AirBand, and the product will deliver to clients this April.
