Title (EN) MOVEMENT POWERED HEADSET
(FR) CASQUE D'ECOUTE ALIMENTE PAR MOUVEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method are provided for advantageously powering a headset without a power cable. In one example, a headset (100) includes a processor (112), an acoustic transducer (116), and a kinetic energy converter (104) operably coupled to a power cell (106) for powering the headset (100), the kinetic energy converter (104) capable of converting kinetic energy of the headset (100) into an output charge for charging the power cell (106). Advantageously, the present disclosure provides for reliably and efficiently powering a headset (100) without having to replace or dock a headset battery and without requiring power cables.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé permettant d'alimenter avantageusement un casque d'écoute sans câble d'alimentation. Dans un exemple, un casque d'écoute comprend un processeur, un transducteur acoustique et un convertisseur d'énergie cinétique couplé fonctionnel à une cellule d'alimentation destinée à alimenter le casque, ledit convertisseur convertissant l'énergie cinétique du casque d'écoute en une charge de sortie permettant de charger la cellule d'alimentation. L'invention concerne avantageusement l'alimentation fiable et efficace d'un casque d'écoute, ne nécessitant pas le remplacement ou le rechargement d'une batterie de casque et ne nécessitant pas non plus de câble d'alimentation.
