Have you ever missed an important football game because you had a meeting, a lecture, or a seminar? Don't worry, it won’t ever happen again.

It seems strange but this kind of technology is not brand new. Guess what? Beethoven used this system to hear what he was composing after he went deaf. This is called Bone conduction and you certainly met this already in your life: bone-anchored medical hearing devices, swimmers headphones, or some handsfree mobile phones.

This use of one of our bodies natural technolologies, the inner ear, means that this pen offers stealthy access to entertainment. The method of delivery, through the pen rather than headphones, also means that you can listen to a seminar or lecture at the same time. 

This pen could also help people with Tinnitus to avoid the inconveniences of traditional headphones. But is it a gimmick or will it catch on? Watch this space.
