Although computing technology is increasingly intertwined with our daily lives, we are not using it to its fullest potential. What if you could send direct messages by simply thinking? Or make a dinner reservation without touching your phone? This would require a kind of seamless human-computer interaction that we have yet to achieve. So what can we do today to get us closer to that potential?
The way we interact with technology is inefficient. We interact with multiple digital devices throughout the day, constantly switching between them. These switches are distracting and inconvenient, causing us to focus more on which device is in our hands, rather than who we’re having lunch with. One device should be seamlessly interactive, comfortable to wear all day, and able to meet our diverse needs without impacting our digital wellbeing by isolating us from our surroundings.
With that in mind, we created the first all-day wearable audio interface: Sentien Audio. It is the best possible solution available today, bringing us closer to establishing a seamless link between people and technology. Interaction with Sentien Audio is natural and personal, thereby improving our digital wellbeing.
Sentien Audio allows you to stay connected to your environment while enjoying the audio from your device. It conducts the sound to your inner ear through your cheekbones, leaving your ears open so you can hear the world around you. Most current audio technology blocks your ear canal, which limits its usability throughout the day. We designed Sentien Audio for comfortable use, all day.
You can smoothly switch between different activities without taking out your phone. For a better idea, some basic use cases are:
- Telling your AI assistant to set a reminder for you while you’re on your morning run.
- Receiving only notifications that matter to you and when appropriate.
- Making a truly hands-free call on the go.
- Listening to music, an audiobook, or a podcast during your commute without losing awareness of the environment.
You can personalize Sentien Audio to fit the rhythm of your day. It allows you to communicate, connect, and listen, all through one device.
