In a world of rapidly evolving technology, the ability to create incredible, out of this world experiences are growing everyday. Especially when it comes to audio, where Israeli company Noveto Systems, is launching a fantastic new listening possibility. Breaking ground with new “Sound Beaming” technology, their latest desktop device has the ability to beam sound directly to the listener’s brain, no headphones needed!

An experience that’s hard to describe, Noveto’s own CEO Christophe Ramstein explains, “The brain doesn’t understand what it doesn’t know.” Meaning, while its possible to describe the mechanics of this sci-fi seeming technology, experiencing it is concept all of its own.

How does it work?

Through the use of a 3D sensing module this desktop device is able to locate and track the ear positioning of a listener. Once found, audio is sent using ultrasonic waves, which create sound pockets by the listener’s ears. Affectionately described as a “sound bubble,” this eludes to the device’s incredible tracking power. Listener’s can move freely, as if within a bubble, never spilling sound in another direction. There’s even two settings available: stereo and a spatial 3D mode, where 360-degree sound is projected around the listener.

Potentialuses of this device is limitless. While sounding exactly like a speaker to a user, passersby are left clueless. Whether you’re working in an office, keeping noise levels down at home, or just want to game regardless of the time, it can all be done disturbance free.

This surreal experience dumbfounds most, as its also easy to share audio with others. By changing a setting sound can switched from following to stationary. Allowing users to step in and out of the beam’s path, thus choosing if and when they want to hear it.

While the concept of sound beaming is not new, Noveto is the first company to jump on it for consumer use. Their device, the Soundbeamer 1.0, will be the first branded consumer product. Ramstein, Noveto’s CEO, even hinted that a “smaller, sexier” version of the prototype will be ready in time for Christmas 2021.

“You know, I was trying to think how we compare sound beaming with any other inventions in history. And I think the only one that came to mind is… the first time I tried the iPod I was like, ‘Oh, my God. What’s that?’ I think sound beaming is something that is as disruptive as that. There’s something to be said about it doesn’t exist before. There’s the freedom of using it. And it’s really amazing.”
