Autodesk has named Asius Technologies, chosen by the manufacturing community, as the 2013 Inventor of the Year.
Members from the Autodesk Manufacturing community around the world selected Asius Technologies, led by audio pioneer Stephen Ambrose, the original inventor of the wireless in-ear monitor that allows performers on stage to hear themselves above other musicians and the crowd, for developing the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL).
The ADEL is a new type of earpiece that solves the problem of hearing loss resulting from repeated earbud use. Ambrose’s newest creation, designed with the use of Autodesk Product Design Suite software, was recognized as the Autodesk 2013 December IOM.
Asius used Autodesk Inventor 3D design software as part of Product Design Suite to digitally prototype many of the ADEL components. Unlike normal in-ear headphones that trigger an “acoustic reflex” that dampens sound, the ADEL seals out unwanted noise and delivers a richer sounds at one quarter of the volume.
