The Ora-X are a pair of high-tech headphones, developed by a company called Optivent, that integrates the wonders of augmented reality into over-ear headphones.

These high-tech headphones can run completely independently of smartphones and other devices, so they are essentially fully functional standalone wearable devices. They are powered by an Android 4.4 Kitkat processor and allow users to stream media from Bluetooth-enabled devices. Their screen offers a 22 degree field of view, and the device also includes a forward-facing video camera.

We've already seen various kinds of augmented reality glasses, the most famous of which is the Google Glass. But the advantage of the Ora-X is that it offers augmented reality functionality in a wearable tech package that most people are already familiar with -- headphones. By exploiting this tech familiarity, the Ora-X ensures that new users will focus on its functions rather than getting used to wearing the product.
