designed to become an integral part of your life, ORII paves the way for a more screen-free lifestyle while giving you instant on-the-go connection to your smart devices‘, says ORII CEO kevin johan wong. ‘our inspiration came from my dad who has been visually impaired from a young age. he set out to develop voice and text-based technology to help others like him and is a pioneer in his field with eight patents under his name. integrating the same technology used in hearing aids, ORII uses bone conduction to send sound discreetly to your ear, creating a device which allows freedom from screen-based interaction.
