There is a sense of satisfaction that happens when you tie a knot. In the bringing of two different pieces or ends of a string together, you are not only bringing together parts that weren’t connected before, but you are creating something new. In the history of knot-tying, one knot in particular, the Hunter’s Bend, showcases this process of inventing.
In his childhood, English doctor Edward Hunter, tied his broken shoelaces together in a very simple variation of a knot. Throughout his teenage years, it never occurred to Hunter that his knot-tying method could take London and the world by storm. However, when a friend told him that the knot was unique, Hunter went public with his new knot and the story was published on the front page of the leading London newspaper, The Times. A simple new way to tie two pieces of rope together revolutionized knot tying and in part caused the International Guild of Knot Tyers to be formed in the 1970s.
At Tekton Design, we have been inventing new speaker technology since our company founded in 2005. And this year, we are going public with one of our new designs. Like Hunter’s knot that simply tied broken shoelaces together, our brand new patented technology that we are unveiling isn’t complex, but it makes all the difference. We are designing and bringing together parts in a way that has never been done before.
Our revolutionary U.S. patent #9247339 (issued January 26th, 2016) allows us to literally align the moving mass of speaker cones to the harmonic spectra of the musical instruments being played. This means that, in theory, we’ve now made every other high fidelity loudspeaker on earth obsolete in one fell swoop!
Revolutionarily simple, and still taking the world by storm.
