Gest / Earbud


Gest, an earbud made of smart materials, is a new, innovative approach that will make earbuds go with any outfit or occasion. Using a trace of electricity, the wire will automatically straighten itself out and form itself into customized figures. Even if the wire is squished into a pocket or bent, these materials will ensure that it will spring back into shape when it is taken out again.
