Wind of Sound / speaker

Wind of Sound
Wind of Sound

Sounds from normal speakers could be heard from every direction. The sound waves coming out of speakers are delivered through the air. Air is everywhere. Even though you use a headphone, the sound still escapes the device. This non-directional quality of the existing speakers is the source of noise.
Wind of Sound is a personal directional speaker using ultrasound, which can send the sound to the space and direction where it is needed. Since the sound does not spread to the surroundings, people around never get stressed from noise. Sounds and silence can coexist in a single space. People can feel the sense of consideration to each other.
