The official Glass earbud is handy and light, but it just dangles there when it's out of your ear. Why not lock it into place? Wrangle your dangle with the StickyBud.
Bring your earbud near the magnet and it snaps into place. Give it a gentle pull and it comes off. It's so satisfying, man.
The StickyBud is a 3D-printed magnetic dock that slips over your earbud plug and holds your bud in place. When you get a call or launch Play Music, move the bud over to your ear. When you're done, stick it to the dock and forget about it. It's there when you need it and gone when you don't. It's the Google Glass philosophy.
You don't need to modify anything to use the StickyBud. To apply it, just slip it over your earbud's USB connector and plug in. The neodymium magnet grips your earbud even as you run, jump, and push your Glass onto your forehead. The StickyBud adds just 1.1 grams to your Glass - that's as light as two dimes.
We've rigorously tested the StickyBud, but you might find an innovative way to break it. Voidstar Lab will replace a broken StickyBud for free until 2015, no questions asked.
Your StickyBud is 3D-printed-to-order in sturdy PLA on our Replicator 2, then assembled and finished by hand. The process will take up to 72 hours from order to shipment. Your order is securely packed and shipped USPS with some free Glass camera covers. It’s all-American artisanal open-hardware micro-manufacturing every step of the way.
We can print your Tactical Cell in any of these filament colors. Just select your color from the dropdown under the 'add to cart' button.

Back in the day, Oakley sold a pair of sunglasses called the Thump that featured a built-in MP3 player. It had these crazy-cool articulated arms that held the earbuds out of the way and swung into place. I decided to build my own little arm to hold the earbud in place, because that dangly little bud is such a pain in the ass that I never used it.
After a little hacking, we realized two things. First, the arm would be ridiculously complicated and clunky. Second, the official earbud was magnetic. A few hours of R&D later, and the prototype StickyBud was ready.
