Imagine a photo of a street - sound (represented by
white) comes from the feet, from the wheels of cars and
busses, from the exhaust pipes from the mouths of
people and the trees. Sound bounces around everything
like reflected light, with darker patches where objects
shield its transmition
to 'the camera'.
How's it possible? lets say a triangle of microphones use..
triangulation to get the direction of the sound. You can
imagine this working fine for a defined sound - like
clicking of fingers. But would it work for more subtle
echo location? all i can say is that i'm sure the human
race is capable of doing that.
It might also be nice to display the 'texture' of sound too.
to clarify, this is a visual image which represents the
incoming sound as a camera does with incoming light.
Also, that 'the triangle' was an example. Hey - lets hope
one of you has seen this Baked! wooo!
