September 2015​ ​will see the primary investment campaign for The Airwave go live on Indiegogo. The Airwave is a Media Player app and Bluetooth-enabled hardware that integrates the power of a walkie-talkie with your phone wirelessly, allowing you to communicate and listen to music from a single pair of earphones. Just load the app, plug in your earphones, select a track, and hit the slopes. You can then transmit audio over the radio by speaking into the microphone on your earphones. Whenever someone else transmits, your music will temporarily pause, playing their voice to your earphones. It can be used anywhere on the mountain, at full range, without mobile signal or Data roaming. Because it’s wireless, you can store the walkie-talkie and Airwave in a pocket or backpack and not have to touch it all day. …

The Airwave is the product of Rob Wheatley, an entrepreneur and avid snowboarder. In 2008, a near fatal experience at Whistler Blackcomb gave him the idea for a reliable communication device to use across all mountain terrain. In 2014 Rob joined forces with engineer Luka Mustafa to develop the technology that would become The Airwave. After extensive international testing, The Airwave is now ready to launch the first stage of investment toward manufacture with their crowdfunding campaign launching September 2015.

The Airwave founder Rob Wheatley says “​ ​We created the Airwave so that we could ski and snowboard to music whilst riding in a group, without sacrificing communication. We’ve tested the technology internationally in all conditions and we’re really excited about how well the device is progressing. We can’t wait to move forward with the next stage of development and share The Airwave with skiers and boarders the world over.”
