Smart private assistants

Proposal for smart private assistants

We are trying to merge the privacy and the possibility of using smart speakers such as Alexa, Google Home, Cortana, etc. in public places.

One of the key pains of the new generations of Smart Speakers is how to interact with them via Voice without loosing the privacy. The idea is to send sounds directly to the users without any addtional hardware with moving parts (headphones).

This idea fix the problem of using Smart Speakers in a banking branch, but also, it applies to other sectors, Automotion picking a call in a car where the passengers cannot her the speaker, or triggering an alarm that only specific people can hear.
