DailyDirt: Cool Sound Effects

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Non-linear properties for materials can create some really cool sound effects. We're not talking about the 'Wilhelm scream' here, but some interesting ways to make soundproof walls -- and super-secret submarines. Here are just a few examples of bending sound in some new ways. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Did insects invent it first?

    If this acoustic cloak pans out, maybe we could look at insects and fish (the prey of bats and dolphins/porpoises) to see if they've evolved this kind of sonic camouflage.

    Interesting stuff!

    I love improvised gear (as I can't afford high end stuff, so this is really cool to me. Now if you'll excuse me I needs some fizzy drink! ;o)
