1:29 /

Paging fans of the movie Her: Motorola's new hands-free earbud connects automatically and keeps you hands-free with a nearly-invisible design, and it works with Moto Voice commands.

[MUSIC] Hi I'm Scott Stein here at Motorola in Chicago. Do you remember the movie Her? Well welcome to the Moto Hint this is a newly redesigned head set that's meant to be an intelligent assistant that works specifically with the new Moto X phone but also with any Bluetooth connected phone. It comes with a little charge case, it's got a 10 hour battery life with 3 top up charges about 3 and a half hours each, Moto Hint is made to live inside that little case and attach to your keychain on the go, and if you feel like you wanna up the design, these come in a variety of different materials for you to pick from. Not exactly like Moto X, but its own styles. That, you know, match the case, and show up over here on the Moto hand. And you just simply talk to it, and say, okay, whatever, because the new Moto X, Moto voice service allows any sort of tag for you to connect to. Or if you don't have a Moto X you can always tap to connect to Siri or any other audio assistant service that you wish. Plus it as IR sensors in here so from the moment you put it in your ear, it automatically turns on to save battery life, and it knows that it is connected, when you take the Moto Hint out of your ear, well then it automatically will relay calls back to your phone. That type of smart connectivity has not really been seen in a lot of bluetooth headsets. The Moto Hint is going to available for $149 later this fall to debut alongside the Moto X from Scottsdine And let's take a look at the multi-design patterned Moto Hint earpiece here in Chicago.
