LAKE ZURICH, Ill., March 5, 2014 -- Product Development Technologies (PDT), a global, full service product development firm has partnered with Prescient™ Audio, developer of the CES Innovations Award Winning ThinDriver™ TD-12, the world's thinnest, lightest, coolest-running 12" subwoofer, to develop the Prescient AudioCase™, a sleek new audio-enhanced smartphone case - and a Kickstarter campaign to fund commercial development and tooling. The Prescient AudioCase will be made available for iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S4.
The Prescient AudioCase is one of the most promising, innovative pieces of audio technology for smartphones. It will be the only integrated smartphone case for iPhone 5/5s or Samsung Galaxy s4 that delivers audio quality and volume akin to a premier portable speaker and has a battery on board to extend the life of the phone.
“We are thrilled to be working with Prescient on the development of the Prescient AudioCase because it truly is a unique product that will fill a need untouched by existing technologies,” says Mark Schwartz, PDT CEO. “The Mini ThinDriver speaker that will be developed for the case following the Kickstarter campaign has promise to revolutionize audio on smartphones to make hearing content on smartphones as enjoyable as viewing content has become.”
"The Prescient AudioCase will bring the highest quality audio possible to people who care about smartphone sound - without awkward external speakers. Literally, the Prescient AudioCase puts high performance audio in the hands of the people. So, we are giving the people an opportunity to lend their hands to its final manufacture," says Paul Niedermann, Inventor of ThinDriver technology.
A crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter is live now.
A $89 Kickstarter Campaign pledge allows individuals to be among the first to own the Prescient AudioCase, a smartphone case featuring both TrueVoice and ThinDriver™ technology to enable high quality, high-volume, two-way audio. Kickstarter backing affords a significant discount to the planned retail price of $149.
