    All the cool kids are doing electroacoustics these days, innit. Each sample from your microphone array is converted to a Spherical Harmonic representation, and is therefore rotatable, linearly mixable and just plain awesome.

    I was contacted once by someone working in this area for ideas on more SH techniques. Mindbending.

    got a chance to hear the speakers built by the stanford students. they carried a decent sound. would be great to build a couple for small parties and such.

    GEEK ALERT!!!

    It reminds me of the 'training remote' that Luke Skywalker tried to defect laser beams from in the original Star Wars.

    Speakers are usually directional - you point them in some direction and for your typical rich audiophile they will build the room and the speaker setup around a listening sweet spot and stick a chair there.

    The spherical speakers are not directional, so you can wander around and get just as good sound at the edge of the room as you do in the sweet spot (that's the theory). It's for super rich audiophiles who want the entire room to be one really big sweet spot.

    They also look way cool.
