An Israeli tech startup has developed a speaker system that creates a “sound bubble,” which basically means you get all the privacy of headphones without the physical requirement of wearing them.
Truly science fiction technology uses ultrasonic waves that are transmitted to the pockets next to the ears. The aptly named “SoundBeaming” technology means that you hear noise coming from behind, below, and around you, while others do nothing at all.
If you are still not sure what Noveto’s product does, even CEO Christophe Ramstein finds it difficult to put the concept into words. “The brain doesn’t understand what it doesn’t know,” he said in a statement.
“I was thinking … is [SoundBeaming] the same with headphones? No, because I … have the freedom to do what I want to do. And I have these sounds in my head, since something would be happening here, which is difficult to explain because we have no reference for that, “he said.
The applications for this product are nearly endless, from being able to listen to conference calls and other work-related audio without disturbing your neighbors, to eliminating the risk of losing, tripping over the cord, or damaging expensive earphones or headphones. .
The 3D facial mapping software continuously tracks where the head and ears are, and the speakers actually adjust where the sound waves should transmit. This means that for those who do not remain in a fixed position, for example, on stationary bikes, at L-shaped desks or in the kitchen, the sound still follows you wherever you go.
However, unlike headphones, sounds from your surroundings can still be heard. If someone calls your name from another room, it is clearly audible.
“Most people just say, ‘Wow, I really don’t think so,'” said SoundBeamer Product Manager Ayana Wallwater. from the Noveto offices in Tel Aviv.
“This is what we dream of,” he added. “A world where we get the sound you want. You do not need to disturb others and others do not be disturbed by your sound. But you can still interact with them. “SHARE: Startup turns 32 million discarded toothpicks into gorgeous decor and furniture
Noveto’s speaker system, while already released, is not available right now, but the company plans to release a smaller version by Christmas 2021.
