Smart Microphone 1.0

Synature began as a bachelor project that was later awarded the best bachelor thesis in computer science from the Universities of Bern, Neuchâtel and Fribourg.

What we are up to

Smart Microphone 1.1

We created a new prototype in summer 2022 that we field tested in fall.  The smart microphone 1.1 features improved user experience, sharper detection accuracy, longer battery life and many more updates. Soon we will publish the latest news about version 2.0.
