Emo Labs, Inc. (dba ClearView™ Audio), a Waltham, MA-based developer of invisible loudspeaker systems for consumer and commercial use, has secured $1.05m in funding from a group of unnamed private investors.
The company intends to use the capital to launch its first consumer electronics product, which will be announced at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2013.
Led by CEO Stefan Bokamper, ClearView Audio has developed patented Edge Motion™-driven speakers which work with a thin, slightly curved membrane that is actuated along the edge area in a manner that creates an efficient, piston-like motion in front. The resultant speaker – extremely thin – produces a full sound across the audio spectrum. The membrane is made from optically clear material that allows for invisible speaker designs.
