SmartEar are a groundbreaking wireless earphone set featuring artificial intelligence. We believe that the ear is the optimal location to house the next computing platform. SmartEar is completely hands free, voice-controlled, and works in loud environments thanks to noise-cancelling technology and directional voice capture. It also understands conversational speech, delivers smart notifications and is extremely comfortable to wear all day. SmartEar is a symbol of a revolution where smart products are truly designed around individuals. It points the way to seamless integration between industrial design and computing development.
