The possibilities of bone conduction are indeed unlimited and more and more companies have already stepped onto the bone conduction train and have started to implement this wondrous technology in their personal products and services. Some with worldwide success, others with limited success. During several Internet browsing sessions, there was one name and one company that, with their bone conduction technology approach, managed to win our hearts right away. The company is known by the name Vue and their products are intelligent bone conduction glasses and bone conduction sunglasses.
Vue has an ongoing crowdfunding and Kickstarter program and already managed to collect more than $2 million. Money enough to produce the first bone conduction eyeglasses and to start the actual production in March 2018. In addition to the Kickstarter program, which allows you to order bone conduction glasses or bone conduction sunglasses at a reduced price, Vue also has a nice website:
