A startup from Finland presented its development - an audio cushion that replaces standard headphones without losing functionality. Such a soft speaker makes it possible to listen to music without causing inconvenience to anyone. The company opened a crowdfunding account for its invention.
As the developers explain, the pillow based on orthopedic material is equipped with a built-in technical device for audio playback, which has a double action. Firstly, the audio device provides sound reproduction of good quality, and secondly, diffuse vibration, which contributes not only to hearing, but also to physically feel the sound vibrations.
For this purpose, the pillow was equipped with the patented Flexound Augmented Audio vibration module. Its work causes vibrations inside the pillow itself, and not outside, so playback will only be heard by the user who is located on it. On its official website, the manufacturer claims that this mechanism makes movies and shows more realistic. The user will be able not only to hear, but also to feel various rhythms, melodies and sounds, whether they are natural phenomena or artistic scenes in the cinema.
To use the novelty, just put your head on an audio cushion made of orthopedic foam. At the same time, the creators of the device do not disclose a technology that blocks the background sound for the surrounding space and people. At the same time, the pillow maintains a tactile effect - if low tones are present in a piece of music, they are not only heard, they can also be felt.
Autonomous work of the innovative novelty is designed for 8 hours. To date, the company has managed to raise about $ 43,000 for its development, which is slightly more than originally anticipated. The cost of one pillow is planned in the range of $ 200-300, and the first batch of the product should appear in September.
