Pretty much all of our smartphones these days come with constantly listening digital assistants. The idea is that by constantly looking (or earout) for the trigger set, users save time as they don’t have to press buttons or launch apps to get the digital assistant to do things for the user.
However, since not everyone needs or wants a digital assistant, we are sure that some users are uncomfortable with the idea of their phones listening to them all the time. The good news is that if you want a little privacy, Pozio could have the answer in the form of the Pozio Cradle.
This is a charger / dock for your phone that when placed in the dock not only charges your phone but also prevents the phone’s microphone from listening to you. According to Pozio, the company “uses patented technology that works in the background to prevent the listening microphones in smart devices from overhearing private conversations”.
Basically, it works a bit like noise-canceling headphones, emitting an inaudible tone that cancels out noises that might be picked up by your phone’s microphone. Users can tell the cradle to stop where the blocking technology is left for 30 seconds so that you have to interact with your phone’s digital assistant during that time window.
If that sounds interesting then go to Pozio’s website where you will be able to cradle for $ 119. to get hold of.
