SONAR / Ultrasonic Speaker

SONAR
SONAR

SONAR is a directive speaker for the daily use. It may be easier to understand it as a speaker that emits a sound like a laser beam. When we wear earphones, sometimes we don’t aware that someone is calling. I decided to design this speaker system because I wanted earphones that did not cover the ears. The design factors and images of this speaker system is that headphones not worn over the head. This speaker uses a unique technology to control ultrasonics. It has a lot of aligned ultrasonic transducer in the unit. The control board installed in it arranges the waveform of the ultrasonic into the audible waveforms.
