Bose Frames offers a state-of-the-art immersive audio experience embedded into wearable audio sunglasses designed with a classic, retro look. Bose AR® software is the first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform helping the wearer stay connected to their digital world and stay engaged in the physical world at the same time.
Wearables by Bose®
are designed with a super-thin mini speaker that "projects" audio (music, calls, voice assistants) into your ears. Much like like Bluetooth earbuds, the wearable device is controlled with a microphone, an embedded multifunctional touch button, and companion iOS and Android apps.
(audio augmented reality) allows the wearer to play music, filter noise cancellation, take calls, and work with voice assistance. Using a custom nine-axis IMU motion sensor to receive contextual information based on GPS and viewpoint.
a companion app for iOS and Android is the easiest way to manage your devices and access key features like auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings.
Bose's emerging tech department contracted AgilityIO's industrial design and software development team to perform custom firmware development for the Bose Frames.
Using our Team Extension model, our core deliverables for this project included the implementation of a messaging framework on the GAT profile of BLE.
We also created a complimentary framework that interfaced with the existing BMAP architecture, then deployed a working demo on LightBlue.
Bose innovations have spanned decades and industries, creating and transforming categories in audio and beyond. Bose products for the home, in the car, on the go and in public spaces have become iconic, changing the way people listen to music. The all-new Bose Frames debuted at SXSW 2018 with an official in-store and online release in January of 2019.
