These directional speakers throw sound in focused beams like a spotlight

Remember when you wanted to blast music on your speaker at home but your dad kept yelling at you to keep it down? How about if I told you there were speakers that could channel their sound in a tight beam, so you can only hear the music if the speaker is pointed at you. If you move out of the speaker’s audio beam, you hear nothing. Sounds pretty neat, doesn’t it?

The SRAY speakers are the equivalent of headphones but they don’t sit in your ears. They throw audio in a beam, like a flashlight focuses light in a beam, illuminating only what you point it at. The SRAY work similarly with sound. Using ultrasonic propagation, these small speakers can bind audio in a unidirectional channel. Point the speakers at yourself and you hear the music. Point them even slightly away and its complete silence.

Audio spotlights, as the technology is often labelled, have been in development for a few years now. I remember seeing a video where someone used these unidirectional speakers to listen to music in a library. You could practically focus the audio towards a single line of people in a crowd, making the technology useful in places like roads and railways, where only people near the train tracks hear the train’s siren, or only the cars in front of you hear you horning, but not the cars beside or behind you.

While this technology is still pretty nascent, the guys at CatchFlow figured out how to shrink it down to a handy size, and democratize it so anyone can access the technology. You can use the SRAY speakers to listen to podcasts, music, driving instructions, or practically any audio without disturbing the person right beside you.

The SRAY is the world’s smallest commercially available ‘audio spotlight’ speaker. It’s practically small enough to fit in your palm, which says a lot for a technology that’s relatively new, and challenging to shrink. The SRAY is capable of providing a uniquely private listening experience by focusing the audio in a thin beam using ultrasonic vibrations.

This allows only the people in the path of the audio beam to listen to the audio, making it great for public services, museums, libraries, transportation, or even at home when you’re around other people who don’t necessarily want to listen to the football game. The SRAY comes with its own stand, allowing you to easily position it in the direction you want, and uses low power too, allowing you to hook it to a power bank for endless hours of use.

That doesn’t stop the SRAY from being a regular speaker. A simple switch allows you to turn the unidirectional speaker into an omnidirectional one. A second audio driver within the SRAY lets it work like a regular speaker, throwing sound in all directions and allowing everyone to hear what’s playing on your phone, the radio, or any device connected to it.

This ability is truly what makes the SRAY such a remarkable speaker. Its unique technology allows it to give you the oomph of a Bluetooth speaker, but also the privacy of a pair of headphones without damaging your ears… And with the ability to seriously impress and shock the people who experience its magic!

SRAY: World’s Smallest Directional Speaker

A headphone-replacing speaker, that generates sounds only you can hear. It is the smallest directional speaker that creates fields of sound which spread less than most traditional speakers by ultrasonic waves.

SRAY generates ultrasonic waves modulated with audio signal and as they pass through the air they modulated and sound can be.

How SRAY Works

SRAY produces a directional beam of sound, sort of like a spot light for sound. This means if you are standing in front of SRAY when it’s on, you will hear the sound it produces. If you step to the side, you won’t hear anything produced by SRAY. In comparison, the speakers we are used to tend to emit sound radially, filling an entire space around it with sound.

All of The Sound, None of The Noise

Earbuds Raise Your Risk of Hearing Loss

Earbuds or headphones enable you to listen with disturbing nobody. However, headphones and earbuds cause damage to your ears the same way other loud noises too, resulting in what audiologists call ‘noise-induced hearing loss (A.K.A NHL)’. Over time the sounds from your headphones cause the hair cells in the cochlea to bend down too much or too severely. If they don’t get time to recover, the damage can be permanent.

So here is the solution, SRAY, headphone-replacing sound generator.

Features of SRAY

Private Area – SRAY brings focused audio to target audiences without disturbing anyone. By user experience, the existence of different sounds can be possible.

Miniaturization – Up to now (present), the directional speakers on the market, cannot be user-friendly due to the size and weight matters. Currently SRAY is the smallest directional speaker in the world and super light. Via SRAY, directional sound is now for everyone.

Dual Mode [Parametric/Hybrid/Normal] – Do you want to share what you hear with people around you? SRAY can assure you. Convertible modes are available depending on the situations or environments.

Low Power – SRAY fits in everywhere due to low energy consumption. Indoor, outdoor, even in the car.

Sleek Design – Modern and simple design are suitable for anywhere displayed.

Ergonomic invisible phone stand that increases productivity is real and its here!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1780235500/moft-x-invisible-and-foldaway-stand-for-phone-tablet

The guys at MOFT make it look so easy to build a stand that’s strong, yet so incredibly sleek and lightweight, it’s practically invisible. Fresh off its high after receiving nearly a million dollars in funding, the MOFT Laptop stand still remains one of the most innovative stands I’ve seen. Weighing practically nothing, and measuring as thick as a credit card, the MOFT Laptop stand sat flat on the back of your laptop, being practically unnoticeable until it opened out to become a two-angle stand for your laptop. Moreover, the stand was universal, and was designed to be sleek enough to sit on the back of your laptop all the time. The guys behind that laptop stand are back now, with a stand for your phones and tablets! Designed with its signature lightweight and thin form factor, the MOFT X “Invisible” Stand for your phone and tablet sits flat against the back of your device, can be opened and used in both portrait and landscape modes, works as a grip for your fingers, so you can use your smart-device single-handedly, and even doubles as a wallet to store some of your payment/identity cards while on the go! If anything, the MOFT X stand for your smartphone and tablet delivers even more function than its elder brother, the laptop stand, did.

The MOFT X invisible foldaway smartphone and tablet stand sits flat against your smart device, just like its laptop counterpart. Designed to fold out with a quick outward motion, it converts into a stand you can use in portrait mode, resting at a variety of angles that are perfect for typing, Skyping, and swiping. The angles help reduce neck strain, and even work with your facial unlocking system to unlock your phone whenever you look at it. Tilt your phone sideways and the stand continues to prop your device up, thanks to its ability to work in both portrait as well as landscape. The stand’s internal magnetic adhesion system is strong enough for the MOFT X to even work as a gripping-loop for your fingers. Slide your hand in, and the MOFT X lets you use your smartphone singlehandedly, providing the same sort of functionality a Pop Socket would give you, while remaining sleek enough to slide into your pockets without getting caught in the fabric.

You’d think the MOFT X’s functionality ends there, but the guys at MOFT Studio had other ideas. You see, the MOFT X for your smartphone even works as a wallet, with enough space to stash 3 cards, allowing you to carry your favorite payment cards, your public-transport access cards, loyalty cards, or your identity cards. Just slip them into the MOFT X’s slot and the stand doubles into a slim, minimalist wallet that’s attached to the back of your phone. Its magnetic system even gives it mounting abilities, allowing you to mount your smart-device in your car, on your bathroom wall, or even in the kitchen, on your fridge.

At less than 2mm thick, the MOFT X is designed to universally work with any smartphone or tablet. Designed with a repositionable glue base, the MOFT X can fit on your phone/tablet with or without a case (as long as the surface is flat and texture-less), and can even be peeled off when needed, leaving absolutely no marks on your gadget. Optimized for a use-case that is more versatile than a laptop, the MOFT X uses its sleek material and innovative design to push the boundaries of what a stand can do for you. I mean, how often do you come across a phone/tablet stand that’s less than 2mm thin, adjustable up to 3 angles, magnetically mountable on walls, and with the ability to even work as a wallet?!

Here’s an Airpods case that lets you carry a bit of Apple history around with you!

The AW3 from elago pays tribute to Apple’s original hero product from its heyday. The 1984 Macintosh-inspired silicone sleeve for the Airpods case really gives it less of a dental-floss vibe and more of a cute relic appeal. The white silicone sleeve guards your Airpods case, cushioning it from accidental bumps and scratches, while an outlet at its base allows you to charge it too. In fact, the entire sleeve is compatible with wireless chargers too, letting you use even the new generation Airpods 2 with it.

AW3’s design comes with the iconic Hello engraved into its form, which also lets you see the green charging light when the case is plugged in. The case opens traditionally, to reveal the Airpods inside, but when shut, really makes for an interesting old-vs-new comparison, reminding you of how far we’ve come from archaic clunky desktop computers to computers so small they fit in the concavity of our external ear!

The DoBox Pro can turn your iPad into a full-feature computer… with ports!

It’s entirely possible that this $119 device could offset the need for a $1299 laptop. Meet the DoBox Pro, a docking station that gives your iPad Pro the things it critically needs to be as useful as your MacBook Pro. A keyboard, a touchpad, a staggering 16,000 mAh battery pack, expandable storage, and ports… LOADS of them!

The full-scale keyboard and trackpad allow you to use your iPad in completely new, yet familiar ways. The absolute surplus of ports return the power back to the user, allowing you to once again plug LAN and HDMI cables, as well as headphone jacks and SD cards into your devices.

The slick, metal device comes with an indentation that docks both the iPad Pro 11″ and the 12.5″. A Type-C cable, plugs the DoBox Pro into the tablet, completing the transformation. DoBox Pro’s backlit keyboard and trackpad work seamlessly with iOS 13, while its wide variety of ports let you use the tablet the way you’d use a laptop, plugging Ethernet or HDMI cables in, or even USB drives. The thin accessory even comes with a massive 16,000 mAh battery that should practically give your iPad hours upon hours of usage-time, and even a slot to plug in an M.2 SATA drive, expanding your tablet’s storage by up to 2 terabytes!

Designed to be the same size as the larger iPad, the DoBox Pro fits right into your bags, measuring just marginally thicker than the tablet, but providing a world of functionality and opportunity to the people who’d like to carry their tablet around to work and not buy/own/travel with a separate laptop that could set them back by over $1299.

Sounds like a pretty neat arrangement, no?

This minimalist carabiner is a badass EDC multitool that could literally save your life

Want to suspend your backpack from a fence, or your keys from the belt loop of your pants? The GPCA Carabiner can handle it. Want to cut boxes? GPCA has it sorted. Want to tighten a screw or remove nails from wood, you’re taken care of with the GPCA. Want to bust open a few bottles of beer, the GPCA is your friend. Want to literally fight off an attacker?

The GPCA’s titanium construction (there are stainless steel and aluminum variants too) literally makes it one of the toughest EDCs to fit on your belt… so much so that you can literally use the GPCA as a pair of brass knuckles to fight off any threat outdoors. The carabiner itself is sturdy enough to carry up to a few hundred pounds more than any EDC carabiners *Not rated for climbing, yet compact enough to work as a keychain. Integrated into its outer frame are a Philips head and a flathead screwdriver, as well as a box-cutter that can also be used to whittle wood, pierce packets of food, or cut cords; while the frame itself is optimized for function too, with a bottle opener and a prybar built right into its bottom.

The carabiner’s clip comes with a spring-loaded gate and a knurled ring that locks the clip in its place (for added functionality, the clip/gate has a lock symbol etched onto it that’s visible only when the knurled ring is securely screwed to the carabiner). Screw the ring upwards and the gate also has a secret hidden compartment for a flintstone too, giving you complete command and control over your outdoor activities. Brought to you by the team that designed the 1945 bolt-action tactical pen, the GPCA carabiner shares a similar outlook of being a feature-rich product that you’d want to carry everywhere you go, partially because of its universal functionality, and partially because it’s such a badass little EDC tool you’re going to love having your own.
