Bose Soundwear Companion Speaker
The researchers at Bose Corp had discovered a way to create an "out loud private sound bubble". One of the puzzles was communicating the benefits to the wearer: the wearer perceives the sound from the speakers as full-volume, room-filling sound, while people a few meters away have little awareness of the sound.

We worked to understand user perceptions and use cases for the technology. Soundwear enables its wearer to have full awareness of what is happening around them, while listening to music, video, or having a phone conversation. Our work created a framework for interaction design, product design, and product messaging.

roles: design research, formalization of platform design, identification of platform development partners, consultation on other components in the platform suite.
