TOKYO, Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bifrostec Inc. has developed a monitoring technology for a comfortable life by vibrations through collaboration with The KAITEKI Institute, Inc. It is sensors technology to measure vital signals of people while they are conducting their normal lives without attracting anyone's attention.

"OkiDoki" is a palm-sized "Location Free Speaker" incorporating Bluetooth receiver, where the sound from TV will emanate as soon as the unit is placed on a table located far away from the TV. It is proven to be the most effective in lecture halls, conference rooms, assembly halls, as well as in various recreational facilities.
