How a Croydon business could change the way we listen to music safely

Crystalusion, who recently won a Croydon Business Excellence Award, have created wearable technology.

A Croydon business could change the way you listen to music and travel safely after creating specialist headphones.

Crystalusion, winners of a Croydon Business Excellence Award last year, has created wearable technology that brings together headphones and smart glasses.

The aim of the new product, called Voxos, is to keep commuters safe while they are on the go.

According to the business, the smart glasses conduct sound through the bones of your skull, which allow people to be more aware of their surroundings if they’re running, cycling or travelling to work.

The new glasses also take into account surrounding traffic, talking and answering your phone.

One of the founders, Ravi Daswani said: “Establishing ourselves in Croydon has been great for Crystalusion, most importantly it has allowed us to tap into networks and to have discussions with the right contacts within the government and industry.”

Last year’s ‘Tech Innovation’ award winners have also created new battery technology, which champions safe, non-volatile batteries using nanotechnology, after carrying out research and development at Sussex Innovation Centre, on Addiscombe Road.

Crystalusion’s glasses are set to launch this month on Indiegogo in support of the WHO and UN’s Decade of Action for Road Safety initiative.

To be nominated for the fourth annual Croydon Business Excellence Awards, as Crystalusion have been, applicants can apply by the closing date on June 15, 2018.
