Pantech to release bone-conducting phone

Comments

BonePhonePantech has announced that they’ll be releasing the A1407PT in Japan come November, which conducts sound, both incoming and outgoing, through your skull. Crazy, huh? Conducting conversations this way supposedly cuts down on ambient distortion, and also provides clearer listening for folks with hearing disabilities. The bonephone is a niche-y technology, but innovative nonetheless. If a mobile just partially used the technology to clean up call quality, it would certainly see more widespread use.
