Providing sound without traditional speakers is what Emo Labs is all about. With their new Edge Motion speakers, which sit invisibly on a display, they may be on to something big.
Emo Labs has developed what they call “the industry's first fundamentally new loudspeaker technology”. Using a sheet that looks something like a large screen protector, Edge Motion speakers are able to send sound directly from the display, rather than from the sides as traditional speakers do.
The sound for these speakers is generated by the vibration of the edge of the material, and is said to be a significant improvement over traditional TV and laptop speakers.
Emo’s CEO, Jason Carlson, sees this new technology as a great service to a customer base that’s long been disappointed aurally. “Every day, people bring home the newest, most advanced consumer electronics -- only to be disappointed by the poor sound quality these devices deliver,” he says. “"With EMO branded speaker systems, manufacturers can now deliver a richer and more natural user experience without sacrificing size and styling."
While pricing, availability and compatibility are up in the air at the moment, Carlson sees no end to the applications for Edge motion speakers.
