US-based audio device maker Bose is contemplating on the notion of cordless earbuds proficient at cooling itself, as shown in the latest patent granted to the firm by the US Patent and Trademark Office several days ago. The company shared this report on Thursday, the patent, as well as its layouts observed in the report, reveal a set of earbuds which comes in the sort of a fitness-oriented gadget composed of the elastomer, means rubber, crammed with substances well-suited in altering their condition of aggregation from solid to liquid and also the other way round. The concept is that the solid subject inside the headphones would transform into liquid when the user’s body attains a specific temperature while the product itself begins to warm up in order to prevent the transformation or at best reduce the temperature rise until the earlobe cools down. The components on their own have the ability to alter their condition of aggregation at particular temperatures, the patent states, which also indicates that Bose can easily produce a series of earbuds which have various definitions of overheating as well as endeavor to hold itself below a user-specified temperature degree.
Collectively the body, as well as the top edge of the earbud, will be loaded with this kind of shape-shifting stuff that would probably appear in gel form. Bose seems to have already developed a prototype device of the product for the requirements of submitting their newest patent with the USPTO, with the design on its own being actually provided for review in the month of October 2016. It’s currently not clear whether the company is still following such treatments for the purpose of commercializing them. The patent was actually submitted before Bose moved into the real cordless earbud sector, with the firm lately also playing around with different budding technologies like artificial intelligence. The company’s QuietComfort 35 II headsets released last September, therefore, cater to the Google Assistant, with the company actually signaling a persisted quest for these kinds of technologies in the future.
