Hands-free audio smart garment
Wave Sciences announces the issuance of US Patent #US9,402,117, which relates to smart garment hearing assistance technology (HAT). This invention does not suffer from the limitations of current hearing-aid or remote-microphone HAT systems and will improve the utility of current hearing-aids and ear-buds by augmenting them, by being discrete and hands-free in its use, and providing greater directionality than can be achieved with devices worn-on or -in the ear alone. This invention is particularly applicable to consumer health, consumer electronics, outdoors, military, and safety applications.
The University of Maryland (USA) has nominated J. Keith McElveen, founder of Wave Sciences, along with co-inventors Dr. Christopher Davis and Dr. John Robertson Rzasa, both of the University of Maryland, for the Invention of the Year for their first true video camera with high dynamic range using only a single lens.
Wave Sciences announces the issuance of US Patent #US9,143,879, which relates to directional audio systems, in particular, to the design, construction and processing of sequence-spaced and tiled directional audio systems. This invention offers superior performance in noisy indoor and outdoor environments and is applicable to military, safety, security, automotive, and consumer electronics applications.
Wave Sciences announces the issuance of US Patent #US8,831,262, which relates to directional audio systems, in particular, microphone and loudspeaker arrays used as directional audio systems, as well as acoustic holography, underwater acoustics, and insonification fields. The invention provides extreme power savings along with highly directional audio regardless of whether you are receiving or transmitting sound. It is particularly applicable to automotive, military, and consumer electronics.
