We like new things. Tech is all about innovation. And this new sound gadget is very new….and old. A company called Morito is producing earphones that actually use your bone (the old part) to create the impression of sound. The headphones cause the bone in your skull to vibrate (sound is transmitted by wave vibration in the normal course of events anyway).
The cool thing about these earphones is that they don’t actually go inside your ear. Awesome innovation, eh? Easier to hear the outside world, while listening to music. No more sore ear from buds. No more ear-muff style phones. Instead of earphones we have skull phones.
By the way, The Raw Feed is wrong when they say that the earphones don’t actually produce sound. They do. They just do it by producing the sound vibrations in a different place: your skull. So really, there is no more illusion in the skullphones then there is in normal headphones. Both produce non-natural sources of vibration to give you the impression of sound.
