It seems that bone conduction technology “BCT” has drawn the attention of several companies.
- Woax are bone conduction headphones we talked about last week which provide a discreet way of communication.
- Buhel SOUNDGlasses is another hi-tech device using BCT that made a huge comeback on a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Technology like this has been used in military applications to communicate in noise polluted areas.
Buhel SG05 SOUNDGlasses
Atellani, makers of Buhel SG05 SoundGlasses made this available to the public with smartphone integration.
Buhel SG05 SOUNDGlasses features
- Hear sound without headphones or earbuds.
- Nose support has noise cancelling microphone.
- Make phone calls
- Siri, Google Now, Cortana, and Navigation Systems.
- Interchangeable lenses
- Shatter-resistant lenses
- Prescription lenses
Buhel uses a handy sound transmitting technique (BCT) which bypasses your ear canal. Hearing is nearly unhindered by the sound transmitted by SOUNDGlasses. While this can be helpful, it also comes with a noise cancelling microphone that allows for you to answer calls, use navigation features, and voice activated services such as Google Now or Siri. Truly a 100% hands free experience.
Woax bone conduction headphones are a more discreet wearable tech that rests behind your ear with even more social flexibility.
Woax Headphone Features:
- Phone calls
- Breaking news
- Post to social networks
- Web surfing
- Create voice stream
- Unique God Mode
Using the same concept, Woax created bone conduction headphones that connects you with all your favorite social apps and phone features such as calling and texting. On top of this, Woax dug deeper into the software and sophisticated it in ways that no other hearable has before. A smart voice recognition software will only recognize your voice after you program it. A unique social platform will allow Woax users to broadcast and listen in to live channels and more with God Mode. Show your support and preorder a Woax from Kickstarter
