A new device has been created by the development team over at Innomdle Lab based in Los Angeles California, that allows you to make and listen to phone calls from your smartphone by simply touching your ear.
Sgnl has been developed to take the form of a smart watch strap that allows you to answer phone calls using your fingertip by simply touching your ear and speaking through the integrated microphone.
Check out the video below to see the new device in action and learn more about his inspiration, design and functionality. Sgnl has this week launched via Kickstarter and has already raised over $50,000 with still 37 days remaining on its campaign.
Sgnl is the smart strap that enables you to answer phone calls through your fingertip. Simply place your fingertip to your ear while speak through the embedded microphone. Replace your existing watch strap with Sgnl and you’re done, whether you wear a classic watch or an Apple Watch, Samsung Gear, or Pebble Time.
There’s no one on earth who never lost their earphone in their lifetime. With Sgnl, you can keep your cell phone alone in the bag and simply raise your hand to answer a phone call with out carrying any extra headset or earphone. When you place your finger to your ear, your finger not only transmits the sound but it also blocks out background noise. So you can hear very clear voice in a loud places without worrying about other people listening in.
Hear your caller’s voice simply by placing your fingertip on your ear as you speak through a microphone embedded in the Sgnl strap. Sgnl receives voice signal from your phone through Bluetooth. When a voice signal is received, Sgnl will generate vibration through its Body Conduction Unit (BCU) which transmits the vibration through your hand to your fingertip. As transmission is made through vibrations, there is no risk of harm to the human body. When you place your fingertip to your ear, the vibration echoes to create amplified sound within the closed space of your ear.
