‘helmfon’ is perfectly fit to work in every open space and for every situation. it can play movies and videos, organize skype conferences, answer or make calls, watch or edit photos, or add personal functions. furthermore, the helmet device can be used in different positions – as a helmet on shoulders, wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted helmet.

‘helmfon’ is also a perfect way to economize the working space. instead of organizing the meeting room, where only one person can communicate by skype calls, cell calls, or VR sessions, ‘helmfon’ gives an opportunity to save office space. thanks to the helmet’s special sound absorption functions there is no need in organizing meeting rooms for online communication anymore. everyone can do his or her communication work by just wearing their ‘helmfon’.
