JNS.org – The Israeli company LifeBEAM has created the first augmented reality (AI) personal trainer headphones to use while exercising.

Within 90 minutes on the Kickstarter online crowd-funding platform, LifeBEAM exceeded its funding goal of $100,000 for the “Vi” headphones. The funding has now surpassed $500,000.

The headphones feature 11 aerospace-grade biosensors that track heart rate, location, weather, elevation, cadence, and more to develop a personalized exercise program. The application can adapt to the user over time and even provide recommendations in real time, coaching users during their workouts.

Additionally, users can listen to music and stream videos while exercising.

“By improving a person’s awareness of their own behaviors, environment, and real-time physiology, Vi provides an inspiring and truly smarter workout experience. We call Vi an ‘Awareable,’ as it’s the first and only wearable with the power to actually be aware of a person’s activity patterns and coach their behavior in real time,” said Omri Yoffe, CEO and co-founder of LifeBEAM, which is based in New York City and has R&D centers in Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, and Asia.
