In Hardwired, iJustine brings her online video personality to AOL, where she searches for the hottest tech gadgets she can get her hands on. In the debut episode, she checks out the intricate devices that L.A.’s top chefs use to construct innovative, unique meals. Episode two brings her to the gym, where she shows off a number of fitness-related tech trends. The coolest item in her repetoire is a Swedish scarf that senses impending collisions and inflates into a bike helmet if need be.
The first season of Hardwired debuted in 2013 and focused exclusively on wearable technology. After the series drew enough attention to earn a season two renewal, AOL and iJustine decided to expand the concept. Future episodes of the second season will cover tech trends in fashion and gaming.
Hardwired is one of four series that AOL has renewed, with 12 new debuts slated to join it. Of the renewed series, Hardwired is the first to return, though a few of the new originals–such as Steve Buscemi’s Park Bench–have already arrived on AOL.
New episodes of Hardwired will arrive each Wednesday. The series is also available on YouTubeij.
