Induction Dynamics® SolidDrive® is a powerful hidden sound transducer that transmits acoustical energy through almost any solid surface. The entire surface becomes a speaker delivering high-quality sound and the frequency response of conventional diaphragm speakers. SolidDrive® provides a distinct advance for audio systems used in home theater systems, distributed audio, and other high-performance audio applications. SolidDrive® works with rigid surfaces that include glass, drywall, granite, metal, wood, ceramics, laminates and composites. Because the SolidDrive® utilizes materials already existing in a room, it's ideal for installed home audio, commercial audio, or a home theater sound system anywhere an invisible sound source is needed.
They also have passive EQ for different materials
MJ v01 The first jacket that allows the user to create music through motion and touch sensors with a mobile app.
WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology) is Korg's innovative technology which allows for wireless sync-start between two WIST-compatible apps on two iPads and/or iPhones located near each other. You can now sync with your friend's device to create a dynamic live performance using two compatible apps.

Farina outer ear audio conduction
Farina is a new class of audio transducer and delivers music and speech to the user by precisely controlling vibrations to the outer ear, turning the pinna itself into the loudspeaker.
The driver has been designed to embed seamlessly into the frame of sports and augmented reality glasses to create rich audio with strong bass for the user whilst cycling or walking; and in 3D glasses to enable a 3D audio effect without the need for addition side or rear speakers.
Unlike ear buds, the Farina does not obstruct the ear canal meaning outside noise can be clearly heard and also unlike ear buds, Farina doesn't create sound pressure spikes that can lead to hearing damage.
With a threefold rise in headphone related pedestrian deaths in the US between 2005 and 2011, a 7pc annual rise in cycling deaths in the UK and nearly a third of urban cyclists ignoring safety warnings and riding with headphones Farina has a significant potential to improve safety for consumers.
It is designed for use in audio, video, augmented reality and gaming applications.
