Microsoft rumored to be developing a Cortana-based hearable device called Clip

Microsoft may be creating another small hardware device that could work with its Cortana digital assistant. A new report claims the product is called Clip and will be made as a hearable device that will be placed either inside the ear or clipped on the ear.

According to Wareable's unnamed sources, the Clip project is still in its early stages:

"Chances are we won't see the Cortana wearable until at least 2016, though prototypes will be ready by the end of 2015. Microsoft is doing research into how people would use this type of a device to hear messages and interact with a virtual assistant via voice. For instance, one use case that Microsoft is looking into is letting parents quickly set and receive reminders about their kids."
