Hot Watch: Lets You Talk Privately By Cupping Your Hand

Now Samsung’s smartwatch tried to solve the problem of calls on a smartwatch by introducing a speaker phone. The trouble with this speakerphone was that everyone on your vicinity could hear your conversation. But here is a new watch that helps you let you answer your calls by just cupping your hands over your ears by its directional speaker and mic. The watch comes with its own accelerometer that responds to movement of wrist. For example, if you want to answer the phone you simply bring it to your ear and for rejecting the call give it a shake.

HOT Watch

The HOT watch developed by PHTL has already completed its Kickstarter drive by acquiring over four times its intended goal. It addresses all the problems of current smartwatches and brings multi platform support. Now while its prototype might not have an attractive design the company promises various variants by December 2013. For a detailed demo do watch the video on its #-Link-Snipped-# page.

Thanks to @#-Link-Snipped-# for the tipoff.

    Seriously - I'm overwhelmed by the craze people have for these smart watches. Not a big fan of smaller screens anyway. I think other smartwatches will eventually get this - just a matter of firmware upgrade it seems 😀

    Is this feature available in samsung gear smart watch?
    I like this idea but we would look like a joker if we keep our hands on ears like a cup and we may look like one of the three monkeys.
    Now on watch: Good idea on privacy guarding but the way we step towards it was not good.May be a other gestures would be good.
