Are You Ready to Say Goodbye to Headphones?

While it’s been a while since Sony has brought the world something as iconic as the Sony Walkman, the company labs have been burning the midnight oil working to bring the latest and greatest products that will improve your daily life. Announced on March 4, 2016, the Future Lab Program is the new banner under which Sony will promote a creative environment and open communication with society to create new technology and lifestyles for the future.

Since the announcement of this new program, Future Lab has been drumming up excitement with teasers of one project titled N. The short video above gives viewers barely a glimpse as to what the product can do, but at the moment, Sony describes the prototype as a hands-free user interface that creates a new way of experiencing audio such as music and sound, and which allows the user to receive audio information without having to insert any object into his or her ear.

There are so many questions that need to be answered about this headset, but one thing is for certain: if Sony has developed a device that delivers audio into our ears without putting anything physically in there, we can’t wait to see what else Sony’s Future Lab Program has brewing for us.
