Necktec welcomes partnership and cooperation
 

What’s been done so far:
Necktec e-necklace form factor created and key technical solutions have been patented in Russia and USA. U.S. Patent applications are filed.

• We made several working prototypes where we implemented and combined the functions of a wireless headset, a music player, an amplifier, and built-in memory.

• We designed and patented a specially-made earphones with different configuration modes - from Comfort Mode for constant/permanent wear to High-Fidelity Mode for high-quality sound. Our unique high-precision mechanism for winding the cables has no parallels in the world.

• We’ve conducted a review of acoustic parameters’ measurements, and based on the results of that research we have created a microphone array which can be used for the entire class of Smart Necklace - a quickly-expanding division of wearables*.
U.S. Patent for Smart Necklace with microphone array is also filed.
