What Things Will Disappear In Just 20 Years?
Israeli startup Noveto presented a technology that allows only one person to hear sound from digital devices without headphones or other devices.
The device resembles a small speaker or audio bar on a TV, monitor, or treadmill. The technology generates a sound signal and directs it precisely to the ears without any additional attachments. At the same time, others cannot hear him..
The invention is distinguished by the controllability of the sound that a person can hear even while moving. To do this, the system uses 3D tracking technology to determine the location of the face in space and send the signal precisely to the ears..
Noveto has already attracted specialists from BlackBerry, Google, Samsung and raised $ 1.4 billion in investments. The project is improving the technology and exploring the possibilities of application for various equipment, cars, gadgets. The stand-alone device is expected to cost less than $ 300.
The developers are still working on the sound quality, but they promise to make it not worse than in headphones, and reach 80% of the performance of elite audio systems for $ 10 thousand. People who tested the invention noted that the existing model has a serious problem when turning the face sound only goes to one ear. The team says they will be able to fix this by placing the system above the user, completely solving the problem..
Recall that in 2019, cars will be equipped with digital keys.
