United Sciences has unveiled a new pair of noise cancelling headphones they have created which are 3D printed to provide a custom fit that is unsurpassed. Not only are the custom futuristic headphones both a perfect fit they are also equipped with brain and biometric sensing technology.
Check out the video below to learn more about ‘The Aware’ custom fit noise cancelling headphones, that have taken to Kickstarter this week to raise the $100,000 they require to make the jump into production.
With still 26 days remaining on their campaign and thanks to over 490 backers, the company has already raised over $110,000 making sure that the project definitely has a good chance of going into production. The creators of Aware explain a little more about what you can expect from these innovative and very unique headphones.
Every wearable should be custom. The human ear is the best place to make a custom product fit. The anatomy of the ear is like a unique keyhole and the shape of the ear enables a custom headphone to lock firmly into place. We have developed the only technology in the world that can measure the unique geometry of your ear, which we use to create a perfectly fitting headphone. The optimized fit also maximizes the performance of biosensors and enables us to obtain a significant amount of reliable biometric data, including discrete signals such as brain waves. We can help you continuously and unobtrusively capture brainwave and biometric data through a custom headphone, all while playing, working, sleeping, or listening to your music.
The Aware is a custom-fit Bluetooth headphone with embedded biometric sensors that reliably measure data such as brainwaves (alpha, beta, and delta), heart rate, steps, distance traveled, and calories burned, among other information, all accessible through your phone. The Aware hearable can track brain waves through EEG and provide real-time feedback about focus, stress, sleep patterns, and relaxation. This enhanced awareness may help users increase focus, lower stress levels, understand their sleep patterns, and help guide them to be more mindful.
Ears are like snowflakes – every one is different. The eFit 3D scanner is the only scanner in the world that precisely captures these unique differences with a ring laser that obtains an accuracy of less than 1/10th a millimeter. Because of the perfect fit, these custom biosensors are able to achieve complete, consistent contact with the surface of the ear, enabling us to reliably capture biometric and brain wave data.
