Kyocera Shows Off Bone Conduction Audio Technology in a Smartphone
While bone conduction technology itself is not new, at CTIA, Kyocera showed off it’s smartphone implementation of bone conduction audio. Bone conduction audio replaces the traditional phone earpiece, with a vibrating display used to create sound waves. Those sound waves can be picked up by facial tissues and bones, providing the user with a vastly improved audio experience, even in a noisy environment. Kyocera provided no information regarding when they might release a phone with bone conduction technology on board.
