1. Bone Conduction
This technologyhas been around for a while. The term sounds very ominous but its grounded morein physiology. The sound is nothing but a series of vibrations interpreted bythe ear and brain. This vibration travels via air, however bone conductionsends these vibrations to upper portion of jaw, from where the sounds get intoinner ear. The concept here is to offer a seamless route for sound into yourear. This tech has not been perfected yet.
