Superfy Your Senses

Introducing… the future! The Eidos concept consists of two experimental products that let you fine-tune your sight and hearing to experience visuals and sound like never before. Essentially, the devices enhance what our bodies already do and the applications are endless – athletes can use it to hone in on their physical technique, musicians can perfect their sound, or spectators can view live performances like ballet with previously invisible/inaudible details. Incroyable!

Eidos Audio lets us hear speech more selectively. It neutralizes distracting background noise and then amplifies the speech you choose. Unlike conventional headphones that have two channels, Eidos Audio has three: left, right, and a central mouth piece that uses the principle of bone conduction. This creates the unique experience of hearing someone speak right inside your head.

Eidos Vision enhances the way we see motion, achieving a similar effect to long exposure photography for live experience. By detecting and overlaying movement, it allows us to see traces and patterns hidden to the naked eye.

Designers: Tim Bouckley, Millie Clive-Smith, Mi Eun Kim, & Yuta Sugawara

    This is a great step in the right direction for sensory augmentation (and quite frankly the audio/visual fields of technology as well)- Good luck selling those products as finished designs though.

    Far too bulky, not appealing at all to the eye… I’m assuming your vision is more impaired than enhanced just by looking at the design you remove all peripheral vision, and replace natural eyesight and depth perception with display screens and a single camera?

    And does the mouthpiece for the inner ear bone stimulation need to be placed inside of the users (open) mouth all of the time? If so that may need further development.

    I am glad to finally see a legitimate design on this site, with actual engineers working on a product not just some graphic designer playing with Adobe making something look pretty while claiming it is new, innovative and problem solving.

    I want one! This would be great to implement something like this for playing live music on the stage. I also love the design as I am a robot it would make me look like a sleeker better robot!
