Motorola's Moto Hint is a discreet and small wireless earbud that allows you to control your phone with your voice. You can ask questions, hear notifications, make calls and send messages without having to take out your phone.
The Moto Hint automatically detects when it's placed in your ear. When you put it in your ear, it turns on and connects to your smartphone. When you take it out, it turns off and routes calls back through your phone. It's designed to be worn all the time though, and has pass-through audio so you can still hear the world around you while it's in your ear.
