Motion Sensing Headset Begins A New Era For Jawbone

By Marie Jones | Monday | 09/05/2011

Wearable accessories are going to a whole new level, with the world's first motion-controlled Bluetooth headset with HD audio.

The Jawbone Era is claimed to deliver the highest quality HD audio experience, unprecedented intelligence using motion technology and a robust computing platform to deliver richer applications.

With a 25 percent larger wideband speaker that brings high definition audio as you talk on the phone, listen to music or watch movies and play games, the headset delivers the most life-like and clear sound imaginable.

Jawbone has a lot of experience in this field. Building on the company's legacy of noise cancelling expertise with its military-grade NoiseAssassin 3.0 technology, it can detect your surroundings and adjust the inbound volume and intelligibility, whether you're in a shopping centre, stadium or traffic, according to the company.
 
It is also the first and only headset with a built-in accelerometer, motion technology, a multi-processor architecture, HD Audio, and a connected app platform that gives the user a richer hands-free experience

The company's CEO and founder Hosain Rahman, says the experience is "almost addictive."

"On top of the HD audio, the integrated sensors and intelligence enable magical new ways to interact with the device and apps through natural, intuitive motion control, changing forever the way we use headsets," said Rahman.

Jawbone was the first company to integrate sensors to enhance the audio experience, and is now delivering the most accurate motion sensing technology on the market together with Fullpower-MotionX. 

The headset detects your natural movements when you interact with it.  To set it into pairing mode, users can simply "ShakeShake" the headset, and "TapTap" it to answer or end a phone call.

The company says this integrated motion sensing technology is just the beginning. Jawbone has a full roadmap of innovation and enhancements under development with its partners at Fullpower-MotionX.

 "Like MotionX, Jawbone pushes the innovation boundary, so we are natural partners," explains Philippe Kahn, Fullpower CEO.  "MotionX integrated with the Jawbone ERA makes for a phenomenal user experience.  This is the first step in a roadmap of continued innovation for years to come."

The Jawbone Era headset is a tiny computer on the ear, complete with multi-processor architecture and serial flash.  Users can take advantage of several new apps, including Caller ID that will identify callers by name in a friendly, non-robotic voice.  The headset can also be updated via the MyTALK platform, ensuring that it will get richer over time.

The Jawbone Era is available in four sophisticated designs: Shadowbox, Smokescreen, Midnight and Silver Lining.  The new line is available now for $149 from Apple stores and selected stores at JB Hi Fi, Optus, Telstra, Telechoice, and other independent Telco retailers.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
