Airbus backed Skyted to unveil new revolutionary mask at CES 2024
CES 2024 unfolds with many innovations and novel products, introducing fresh avenues for exploration and improvement in our daily lives. Skyted showcased one of its brand-new innovations at the convention called the “Voice Frequency Absorber“.
Skyted is a French-based company, founded by ex-Airbus VP – Stéphane Hersen and acoustical engineer Frank Simon. The Voice Frequency Absorber was co-developed with ONERA and the European Space Agency. Their Voice Frequency Absorber also called the Mobility Privacy Mask and Hybrid Silent Mask, was Developed to create a silent environment for your Zoom, Phone, or any other application you’re using.
Hersen stated in a press release –
“No matter how busy or public the location is, they can now speak in silence and with the assurance that no one nearby can hear their conversation.”
The masks utilize sound-dampening material developed by Simon during his tenure at ONERA. Initially designed for jet engines, this material enhances the mask’s acoustic properties.
Here’s Skyted’s Preview of their new mask –
The mask will link to your smartphone wirelessly or in wired mode with the dedicated app enabling a passthrough toggle to transmit speech via the smartphone’s speaker. So you won’t have to take off your Skyted mask when you want to transmit a speech to the outside world.
Skyted’s Mask will be available in 2 options – Skyted Wired & Skyted Bluetooth.
The wired variant will encompass all the features mentioned, excluding Transparency Mode. In contrast, the wireless version will include additional functionalities like Voice Booster, Voice Awareness, and 128-bit Encryption. The Skyted mask is not available for purchase just yet, but prices are already set at 399$ for the Wired version and 599$ for the Wireless (Bluetooth) version.
