Sound : Advancing like everything else

| October 11, 2010 | Reply

Technology is something that keeps advancing through time quicker than everything else. Progression in technology is power and provides us one step closer to “the future” which is the focus while still helping mankind in the process. We see many advancements in the world of video with AMOLED and Retinal displays, but what are the advancements in some of your other senses then visual feedback. The company “Squarehead Technology” provides a glimpse of future audio. Using sophisticated placement of 315 microphones along with a wide angle camera housed in a carbon fiber structure this show head esque device allows the user to zoom in on any area of video and muffle the background noise to bring out the selected “zone” to the front of the audio layers. Basically think of a huge football arena with thousands of roaring loud fans cheering their favorite player, at the same time we can zone in on their favorite player and hear word for word what he is saying on the field without the cheering crowd. Using the controls the operator can use this live or prerecorded and still be able to watch footage and zoom in to each person on the field and hear their banters. It amazes me the leap and bound technology makes to improve our senses. You can check out the video below to get a better representation of what the “Zoom Audio” can do.

About the Author ()

I am the Owner/Founder of WJDDesigns.com & GizmoNinja.com , I was born in to a world that was emerging on the frontier of technology. Within time I self taught himself everything from coding to graphic design and wanted to bring my creations to the public by the masses. With the new growing world of mobile applications I could achieve just that. I am always looking to learn something new and provide the best service and information I can. I am really a cool and calm type of guy who is more of a lounge party setting then going to the loudest rock concert ever. When I go out to eat at fancy places the ambiance is what I comment on first, if the ambiance is poor then my food doesn’t go down as good. I look at everything around me that has different shapes and colors which creates ideas I use in my everyday projects. I try to live life to the fullest when life dishes out free time. I love to teach everyone I know who isn’t as tech literate as myself and give them more information to better their decisions. The progression in technology is life, it’s my life.
