Smartphone Challenge: Edgar Choueiri's 3-Dimensional Sound Lab
Being WonderHowTo staff, I'm not qualified to win this week's Smartphone photography challenge, but I thought I'd share anyway. The (unfortunately) blurry image shown above is a shot of Professor Edgar Choueiri's sound lab at Princeton University. Edgar is a friend, and was kind enough to give me a tour of the space where he's developed 3-dimensional sound.
Though the concept my sound like surround sound, it's much more. The listener is completely enveloped in sound, experiencing noise in front, behind, left and right. It is an incredible experience. Learn more in the video below.
