The technology, developed by Redux, eliminates the necessity of small speakers in mobile devices.

Artificial intelligence company Dark Blue Labs and Vision Factory was bought out in 2014 for a sum exceeding tens of millions of dollars. As expected the Redux website is now down and Google is expected to officially announce the acquisition.

"Moreover, our surface audio technology is more power efficient than traditional micro speakers, which means people can play music and watch videos on their phones for longer between charges". The sound quality is said to be "decent". Not only does this mean that more advanced haptic feedback is possible, but the displays can also be used as speakers. On Ivanov's profile page, it says that Redux achieved a "successful exit" in August 2017, but it does not state the buyer. The startup was backed by Arie Capital.
