Hands-Free Binoculars

HiStar T-8000

— October 25, 2007 — Tech
Nothing is as irritating as a shaking hand while trying to view wildlife discretley, which is exactly why HiStar's hands-free T-8000 binoculars are so appealing.

Not only is HiStar the first company to design a hands-free spotting device, but they are also very technologically optimized compared to some other brands in the optics industry. The padded headband is adjustable and its wide angle view doesn't require any adjustments, allowing for extreme ease of use. Radio headphones can be purchased as an add on.

HiStar President and CEO, Tristram Himmele, is proud of the fact that theirs is the world's first optics gizmo of its kind.

"With its hands-free capability a new genre of binocular technology is revealed," Himmele said. "This feature-rich binocular will be an asset to sports enthusiasts, nature buffs and surveillance users.

"Our patented technology is an innovative approach to enhancing the viewing experience. Previously, spectators were forced to deal with the awkwardness of traditional binoculars. Now, extended binocular viewing can be experienced hands-free, in addition the optional AM/FM radio combination allows spectators to hear the play by play of their favorite sporting event."

A great concept, but the athletes and nature lovers they're targeting need to keep in mind that the device can't always be kept on. How do you see the trail if you're hiking? You would have to take them off to walk, eat or even to take a tinkle in the bush.
