The Future Lab Program™ N offers a new user interface based on the idea of interaction with information through music and audio, without using your hands or covering your ears. It features an advanced experimental design that aims to create a prototype for devices worn around the neck to be durable, with modules for sizing that solve problems related to how they fit and feel. The circular laminated felt on the packaging, 30% of which comes from recycled plastic bottles recovered from the market, introduces new possibilities for how felt can be utilized. In 2016, we announced the concept prototype and conducted sales tests.
