Pellta Air / Security Device

Pellta Air
Pellta Air

Pellta Air is a security device that protects you from unauthorised access to your audio and video data. The smartphone often accompanies us 24/7, waiting to be addressed by touch or voice. For the user, it is often impossible to understand which programs are really on acoustic reception. Even when switched off, the device is not absolutely off. This is especially a concern in the business and research context. A specially developed process applies a constant stream of air to the phones‘ microphones. As a result, they perceive an enormous volume and can no longer process anything else. The phone always remains accessible and audible.
