The smartwatch strap replacement enables wearer to take calls by sticking a finger in their ear. This unusual way of using the phone as been first introduced in 2000 by Japan's NTT DoCoMo. The Finger Whisper gadget never made it into the market as far as we know.
Innomdle Lab is now set to bring TipTalk to the market later this year.
"I landed on the idea when an older acquaintance of mine was showing off his smartwatch but said he felt a bit ill at ease because people around him could hear his phone conversations," Choi Hyun-chul, CEO of Innomdle Lab, said to Yonhap.
The TipTalk enables private calling by transmitting the voice call into vibrations that travel from the wrist to the finger. Besides Finger-To-Ear calling the TipTalk bracelet is also a fitness tracker and also notifies wearers about messages and incoming calls.
The 6mm thin TipTalk smart strap is compatible with Apple's iOS and Android.
