Soundscraper Transforms Vibrations from City Noise Pollution into Green Energy

Designed by Julien Bourgeois, Olivier Colliez, Savinien de Pizzol, Cedric Dounval and Romain Grouselle, the Soundscraper is covered with noise-sensitive cilia that harvest kinetic energy while soaking up urban noise pollution. World's first 3D acoustic cloaking device created. Metamaterials are already being used to create invisibility cloaks and "temporal cloaks," but now engineers from Duke University have turned metamaterials to the task of creating a 3D acoustic cloak.

In the same way that invisibility cloaks use metamaterials to reroute light around an object, the acoustic cloaking device interacts with sound waves to make it appear as if the device and anything hidden beneath it isn't there. Steven Cummer, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and his colleagues at Duke University constructed their acoustic cloak using several sheets of plastic plates dotted with repeating patterns of holes. Neuroacoustics: The Healing Power of Sound.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM—The experience of sound is at the very core of human consciousness, and it can be a powerful tool for healing, said Jeffrey Thompson, DC, at the annual meeting of the American Holistic Medical Association.

Neuroacoustics: The Healing Power of Sound

For more than 20 years, Dr. Thompson has been exploring neuroacoustics and the therapeutic application of sound. His researches have led to the development of precise protocols for using sound to modulate brainwave patterns, affect sympathetic-parasympathetic balance, and synchronize the activity of the right and left brain hemispheres. He has applied these methods in stress reduction, cardiovascular disease prevention, management of depression, and a host of other conditions. “It is akin to the picking of a lock on the neurophysiologic processes that the body already uses to heal itself,” said Dr. Primordial Sounds and Self-Awareness.

What Causes Hearing Loss

Causes and Treatment. Waterproof MP3 Player uses Bone Conduction Tech. November 2, 2004 A waterproof SwiMP3 player that uses bond conduction technology has been released for swimmers, triathletes, surfers and anyone who wants to listen to music whilst in the water.

Waterproof MP3 Player uses Bone Conduction Tech

The SwiMP3 player comes from Finis, Inc., founded in 1993 by Olympic Gold Medalist Pablo Morales and John Mix. Unlike other waterproof players that rely on traditional air conduction technologies, often producing a muffled sound, the SwiMP3 player uses bone conduction (the direct transfer of sound vibrations from the cheek bone to the inner ear) to provide the swimmer with exceptional sound clarity. Bone conduction hearing is a safe, well-established hearing mechanism in humans that the SwiMP3 player leverages to enhance aquatic activity. The SwiMP3 player is fully waterproof and can be used with all competitive swim strokes.

It holds approximately 30 songs for four hours of continuous music. "This is a revolutionary step forward for aquatic athletes," said John Mix, President of Finis, Inc. NTT DoCoMo's Sound Leaf+ ready to conduct a bone near you. Remember the Sound Leaf?

NTT DoCoMo's Sound Leaf+ ready to conduct a bone near you

Unless you live in Japan, there's a very good chance you don't, so let us refresh your memory: it's a rather interesting Bluetooth device that looks a bit like a miniature handset and functions as a bone-conduction receiver for taking calls in noisy environments. It's a cool idea -- Bluetooth headsets are very, very rarely as loud for the wearer or as noise-free for the person on the other end of the call as they should be -- but for whatever reason, the technology really hasn't taken off in full force.

Again, that's unless you're in Japan -- because NTT DoCoMo's just released the Sound Leaf+, a new take on the original that looks almost exactly the same but trades an all-white color scheme for a more in-your-face black getup and apparently features improved reception.

Custom Earbuds by OwnPhones

OwnPhones founder, Itamar Jobani, says his company aims to address that shortcoming. Jobani, an artist and designer, says he was frustrated with his own earbuds constantly falling out. A jogger, Jobani decided to use his extensive experience with 3D modeling, scanning and printing to put together a team of programmers, electronics engineers, industrial designers and others to make the perfect, custom headphones. "The combination of the declining price of the 3D printer – as well as the availability of more and more materials – creates a competitive edge to 3D printing over traditional methods of manufacturing, allowing 3D printing to get into more and more industries," said Jobani.

OwnPhones is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign to make them one of the leading edge companies looking to mass-produce a customized version of a 3D printed consumer product.
