Even true wireless earbuds, like the AirPods Pro, can be a hassle to wear sometimes when out in public, but what if there was a device that could beam music directly to your head? Introducing SoundBeamer 1.0 by Israel-based company Noveto Systems. How does it work? The device employs a 3-D sensing module to locates and track the user’s ear position before sending audio via ultrasonic waves to create sound pockets. The sounds can then be heard in stereo or a spatial 3-D mode, the latter of which creates a 360° sound around the listener. Read more for a video and additional information.
Simply change a setting to follow the user around when they move their head, while also being able to move outside of the beam’s path to stop listening. This prototype may be too large for most bags, but CEO Christophe Ramstein is hoping to build a smaller, sleeker model for consumer release in late 2021. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on pricing, but we expect it to cost as much as high-end wireless earphones.

You don’t believe it because it sounds like a speaker, but no one else can hear it…it’s supporting you and you’re in the middle of everything. It’s happening around you. You don’t need to tell the device where you are. It’s not streaming to one exact place. It follows you wherever you go. So it’s personally for you — follows you, plays what you want inside your head,” said SoundBeamer Product Manager Ayana Wallwater.
