Happiness is as simple as a finger in the ear. This could be the motto for the future start-up SGNL! This smart bracelet to simply call by placing your index finger in the ear. The principle is simple: SGNL connects to the smartphone through a Bluetooth wireless connection. The mobile can remain in a pocket or purse. Upon receiving a call, send a signal to the bracelet will vibrate.
The person who takes the call by pressing a large button. He then places a finger in the ear and begins to speak, his voice being picked up by a microphone integrated into the bracelet. The finger transmits the sound while blocking ambient noise. Which of course significantly improves the quality of the conversation, especially in a noisy environment.
Technically, how does it work? Sound is transmitted through the index due to vibrations produced by the driving body unit (BCU), a small device installed in the bracelet, an audio algorithm, selectively drives the voice of the caller. This sound is ultimately amplified, naturally, in the ear. It is also not necessary to press your finger too deeply into the ear, particularly to avoid dispersing too much earwax in your environment after each call.
