三星推出众筹新品Sgnl表带 指尖瞬间变为手机

由三星公司分离出来的一家新兴公司创造了一款表带,据称这款表带可让用户用指尖接电话。

自本月登陆众筹网站Kickstarter以来,Sgnl公司提出了全新交流方式,吸引了众多科技博客的注意。Sgnl公司的这项技术让人想起间谍电影和科幻小说,有一位博主称其为“梦想中的科幻装置。”

截至发稿时,项目发起方首尔Innomdle实验室在Kickstarter上筹集了超过86万美元,远远超过了早先5万美元的目标,而且这项众筹还有21天才结束。Sgnl公司预计将在2017年2月开始货运工作。

Sgnl的工作原理与骨导耳机相似,都是通过身体传导振动,只是Sgnl的智能表带不涉及耳机。Innomdle实验室称即使在嘈杂的环境下其音频仍保持清晰,并且由于震动是通过手指直接传到到耳部,因此附近的人听不到电话那头的通话。

这款表带内置了麦克风,将审议传到电话那头,还有传感器捕捉动作。由于Sgnl是一款配件,因此Sgnl公司与智能手表商家合作,为传统的“哑巴”手表提供科技更新。这款表带也可以单独作为腕带使用。

尽管Kickstarter上许多项目都失败了,但这个项目因为其与三星公司的关系而看起来前景光明。电子巨头三星公司在2015年将其一个内部创新实验室发展成了Innomdle,并在今年的柏林国际电子消费品展览会(IFA)上展示了Sgnl产品。

A startup spun out of Samsung has created a watch strap that purportedly makes it possible for people to answer phone calls using their fingertips.

Since launching on Kickstarter this month, Sgnl has captivated tech blogs by proposing a completely new way to communicate. The technology recalls spy movies and science-fiction novels, leading one blogger to call it "the sci-fi gadget of your dreams."

The excitement around the smart watch strap has helped Seoul-based Innomdle Lab raise more than $860,000 on Kickstarter as of this writing-far surpassing its $50,000 goal-with 21 more days of fundraising to go. The company expects to start shipping Sgnl in February 2017.

Like bone-conduction headphones, Sgnl works by passing vibrations through the body-except in this case there are no headphones involved. Innomdle claims that audio remains clear even in noisy environments, and because the vibrations are transmitted through the hand and directly to the ear, people nearby won't be able to hear both sides of a conversation.

The strap is embedded with a microphone to send audio back to the caller, and sensors to track activity. Because Sgnl is an accessory, it works with smartwatches and offers a tech upgrade for "dumb" watches. It also functions as a standalone wristband.

While many Kickstarter projects fizzle, this one appears promising because of its association with Samsung. The electronics giant spun Innomdle out of an internal innovation lab in 2015, and showed off Sgnl at the IFA tech show in Berlin this year.
