OnBeep, a year-old startup based in San Francisco, just unveiled its first hardware product – a real-time wearable communicator named Onyx. Inspired by the futuristic walkie-talkie featured in Star Trek, it pairs to a smartphone via Bluetooth and works with Wi-Fi or data service. Sporting a slightly bulky but lightweight circular design, Onyx can support up to 15 people in real-time group conversations—an interesting take on bringing group messaging into the physical world.
