Sgnl – Make phone calls with your fingertips

Wondering how to secure your mobile phone from pick -pockets in crowded places? or not taking the trouble of removing it from the pocket to make a call? Well then here’s the solution to your problem, we have Sgnl, a watch strap that lets you make phone calls through your fingertips. It’s a smart band that, when attached to your watch, allows you to make and take calls through your fingers. That’s right, put your finger or thumb in your ear, and you can make a phone call without actually using your phone.

How Sgnl Works

Sgnl receives voice signal from your phone through Bluetooth. When a voice signal is received, Sgnl will generate vibration through its Body Conduction Unit (BCU) which transmits the vibration through your hand to your fingertip. As transmission is made through vibrations, there is no risk of harm to the human body. When you place your fingertip to your ear, the vibration echoes to create amplified sound within the closed space of your ear.

WHY IS IT INTERESTING?

Because it lets you use your fingers as a phone, people! It’s a sign that we’re finally arriving at the future we were promised by sci-fi films when we were kids.

Here’s how it works. It pairs to your phone over Bluetooth and, when it receives a voice signal, the Body Conduction Unit (BCU) on the strap vibrates. This vibration travels up your hand to your fingertip. Put your fingertip in your ear, and the vibration will echo, amplifying the sound within your ear cavity.The microphone is built into the strap, so just speak into it to be heard.

Not only will it make you feel like you’re in a sci-fi film, but it also means only you can hear the person on the other end of the line.

The whole time, your phone stays in your pocket or bag, so there’s no need to rummage around for it when it rings and – because you’ve got your finger in your ear – you’ll also block out background noises in raucous environments such as bars and clubs.

Person next to you boring you? No problem. Just put your finger in your ear and pretend you’re taking an urgent call. Because your phone stays hidden away, they’ll have no way of knowing you’re trying to get rid of them.It doesn’t need a smartwatch, as all the tech is built into the strap and the call is taken through your phone. That means you can strap it to an analogue watch and still have smartwatch skills.

Of course, you can strap it to a smartwatch too, or just wear it on its own as a bracelet. The choice is yours.It also has a partner app that can track your steps and activity, remind you about calls, and alert you to text messages and notifications by buzzing the strap.With Sgnl, the primary focus is the transmission of the human voice, therefore they continue to diligently work towards lessening variation in that frequency range. Once frequency response in that range meets the standards,  plans have been initialised to extend Sgnl’s functionality to work across a wider range of frequencies
