Here – Active Listening


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Through two truly wireless, in-ear buds and a smartphone app, Here allows you to instantly control real world audio so you can hear what you want to hear – no matter the situation – and be fully immersed in your audio environment.

Here does not stream or play recorded music. Instead, the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) inside Here acts as a studio in your ears by providing you with a volume knob, equalizer and effects to transform real world audio. Use this “remote control for your ears” to have an optimal listening experience every time.

You can back them at Here Kickstarter

Backtrack – Sound Memory Recorder


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Tchotchkes, photos & other tangible objects are all effective when it comes to reflecting on our memories, but what if you could hear your memories rather than see them? The Backtrack concept explores this alternative sensory approach to preserving memories. Equipped with GPS, the device detects the user’s location & records audio when specified. Users then define the precise emotion they were feeling at the moment. The device saves each recording with an “emotional tag” that can then be shared on social media to let others in on the sound of your experience!
