While Emo Labs wasn’t a heavyweight at CES, they were able to garner some attention for their Edge Motion technology. A demo given to the crew of
gave plenty to be excited about, and for once the idea of an “invisible” speaker could be worth looking out for!
Evidently, the technology is similar to NXT’s SoundVu that had plenty of issues getting off the ground back in 2005. But, this new system uses “arrays of motors to wiggle the edges of a clear membrane” in order to produce audio, something that SoundVu didn’t do.
Emo Labs optimistically hope to have this concept integrated into the panels of TVs by the end of next year.
