Title
(DE) KLANGPRODUZIERENDE VIBRIERENDE OBERFLÄCHE
(EN) A SOUND PRODUCING VIBRATING SURFACE
(FR) SURFACE VIBRANTE PRODUISANT UN SON
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus comprising: a transducer configured to mechanically vibrate; and a surface coupled to the transducer, wherein the surface is configured to receive the mechanical vibrations from the transducer, permit the vibration to pass through the surface whilst remaining substantially static, and such that in use the surface generates audible vibrations where the vibrations exit the surface and the surface is positioned proximate to an users ear.

(FR)
La présente invention porte sur un appareil comprenant : un transducteur configuré pour vibrer mécaniquement; et une surface couplée au transducteur, la surface étant configurée pour recevoir les vibrations mécaniques depuis le transducteur, permettre à la vibration de traverser la surface tout en demeurant sensiblement statique, et de telle sorte qu'en utilisation, la surface génère des vibrations audibles où les vibrations quittent la surface et la surface est positionnée à proximité d'une oreille d'utilisateur.
