      Description

      Headphones have become ubiquitous within the modern world; and for good reason, people love their music. Understandably, people hate when something comes between them and their music. Unfortunately, headphones often become a vexing obstacle between the user and their music. Anybody who uses headphones will tell you that one of the most aggravating situations is when their all set to listen to their music, they get their media device out only to find the cables in a tangled mess.
      Although untangling the headphones only takes a few minutes this is an inconvenience the user would rather not deal with. Enthusiasts and headphone producers have long recognized the problems associated with tangled cables, spending millions of dollars in research and development. Unfortunately, the result of this research has created subpar products that are either too inconvenient to use or are ineffective at improving the users experience. It has been proven many times that users are unhappy with the current headphones design and their poor tangle resistance. Moreover, there is a proven market for solutions. For example, one of many market proven products includes the Kickstarter Project CordCruncher, the project raised over $66,000 in just 30 days (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1587181400/cordcruncher-earbud-headphones). There are many other Kickstarter Projects that have raised over $600,000 for cable solutions.
      Our solution has the same functionality as the Cord Cruncher Headphones, and more. The product would be cheaper, more versatile, and convenient to use; solving the annoying problems associated with tangled, damaged, strained, or knotted headphone cables while opening up possibilities for more creative uses of headphones. The solutions functions by using a special wire integrated into the headphone cable, the wire is commonly known as memory metal and has riveting properties. The memory metal allows the user to use the headphones, as they normally would, however in order to conveniently wrap the cables up for storage the user may press a button that causes the memory metal to return to a predefined shape. Useful predefined shapes may be a tidy coil, compact winding that contours to an electronic device, or even an Apple Logo! The possible shapes, sizes, and configurations are endless; any shape that cables can be wound into can be achieved automatically by using integrated memory metal. Custom designs may include the user name, a word, or customer design.

        Description

        Flat cable cord (0.4 mm thick rectangular cable with total cable length 100cm) is rolled up on a button sized cable reel from both sides with different length. 1/3 of the total cable length distance is between device and earphones and 2/3 of the cable length is between device and plug for mobile phones (3.5mm phone jack, for any smartphone). The device is therefore located on the upper chest during use.

        In the centre-point of the cable reel where the cable is rolled up from both sides a microphone and a button to take/stop phone calls are placed. Thus, the cable is rolled up around the micro and the micro (respectively housing) is placed on the upper chest during use and is therefore in the ideal speaking position (distance earphones - housing/micro (upper chest) = 33 cm; distance phone jack - housing/micro (upper chest) = 67 cm).

        Cable is rolled up synchronously from both sides with different length and different speed in an elegant way. The whole device has a diameter of 26mm and a height of 10mm and therefore looks like a button (fixed with a steel clip). The mechanism is patented (PCT) and the name Rollset trademark protected.

        Rollset's main features:
        - High quality in technique and design
        - No radiation
        - Handy and easy to use

        Target audience:
        Anybody – but mainly focussing on young, urban professionals and anybody who appreciates innovation, good design and quality.

              Description

              Throughout the world, mobile phones have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life. Moving fast forward, technology has travelled from our desktop to our laptop and now to our handheld device. And with every great sensation, human behavior often finds a way to cast shadows of darkness. The cell phone is no exception as many inherent life threatening problems are also gaining light speed momentum. These problems come with a very large cost. The World Health Organization estimates distracted driving alone is costing countries one to three percent of GDP. On the high end, this preventable expense amounts to nearly 450 billion dollars per year for the United States.

              Mobile phone problems are well documented in the following areas:
              Prisons - #1 smuggled contraband. Gang warfare and illegal activities are carried out.
              Highways - #1 cause of distracted driving accidents and leading killer of teen drivers.
              Classrooms - #1 problem in our schools due to class disruption, cheating, and bullying.
              Court rooms - jury tampering, jury box research, jury boredom, jury social media.
              Airplanes - terrorists can detonate a bomb using the cell phone.
              Hospitals - mobile phones are forbidden in ICU's due to equipment malfunction.

              TECHNOLOGY OBSTACLES - A handful of companies have attempted to become solution providers for a few of these problems, most notably problems in our prison systems, behind the wheel, and in our schools. NONE withstanding, each and every one of them face impenetrable obstacles such as: uninstalling the application; turning off the Bluetooth; GPS latency and signal lapses; large number of varied mobile platforms; continuous updating; closed platforms; battery drain; single phone to vehicle pairing; and the inability to affect skype and satellite phones.

              PRIMARY OBSTACLE - The most significant obstacle facing solution providers is the lack of universal standards within the mobile device industry. Currently, there are NONE. Because there are no standards, the ability to universally apply a simple safety feature cannot effectively be carried out across all mobile devices. Absent uniform protocols, no solution will ever be complete. Every major industry worldwide has universal safety standards except the mobile phone industry.

              SOLUTION - TSF has developed and proposes adoption as a universal standard a set of distraction prevention and safety protocols along with matching bluetooth technology to be embedded into the firmware in all mobile phone devices. Such adoption quickly and easily provides a comprehensive remedy for all the problems mentioned above for ALL mobile phone devices. The protocols automatically instruct the mobile device how to behave when in protocol specific environments containing a corresponding active Bluetooth sensor.

              Examples of Sensor Specific Environments - In a prison all phones will shut down; in the driver's seat area of a transit bus, all phones will go to sleep; in the driver's seat of a passenger car, the texting and email functions will be inhibited and only hands-free Bluetooth will function; in a classroom the instructor could use the phone as a teaching tool for part of the class, then flip a switch to put all phones to sleep when giving a quiz, and so on as shown on page 3. Because the protocols will be embedded into the firmware, they cannot be uninstalled nor turned off. The protocols will be hack proof sum check protected and part of the OS.

              COST OF TSF PROTOCOL ADOPTION - ZERO (detail on page 5). TSF proposes a flat monthly protocol fee of $1 per phone. The revenue generated will offset the necessary expense outlay to outfit the prisons, schools, court houses and public transportation vehicles with their respective protocol sensors. The cost to the automobile manufacturers will be less than $10 per vehicle which they can pass on without a problem. We can look at this from more than one angle. First, it can be understood as an insurance reduction far greater than its cost. A l

                  Description

                  MobileCAD is a system designed to emulate mobility. As a mobile phone travels at different speeds and trajectories through a geographical area, a device suffers of signal changes, network delays, attenuation, and fading. Device manufactures need to ensure all interacting parts of a mobile device from its core Operation System (OS) to the RF antenna can function together with mobility protocols (e.g. Mobile IP), applications, and sophisticated features. This process is difficult to conduct using traditional methods such as “Drive Testing.”

                  Our platform provides a simulated drive testing scenario with emulated packet delays, bandwidth characteristics, fading effects, noise, and error rates (BER). A virtual drive testing environment is then useful for testing, certification, and mobile platform development.
