SoundFun, a Japanese age-tech startup, will present “MIRAI SPEAKER,” the speaker with a curved
frame that converts soundwaves into ones that are easier to hear for the elderly and everyone else.
Because the soundwaves produced using the company’s proprietary “Curved Surface Sound
Technology” fade into the distance more gradually in a wider angle than those coming through the
cones of conventional loudspeakers, sounds reach a lot farther and more clearly without requiring the
listeners to turn up the volume.
It’s particularly helpful for the elderly, as humans’ talking voices come
through even more distinctively.
