Gadget Freak Case #176: Surround Sound Fun in 3D

GF 176 Surround 3D Fun

After hearing a college lesson on Pierre Schaeffer and his potentiometer d'espace, Raven Sanders, a student of the Lyle School of Engineering at SMU, decided that Schaeffer had the right idea when it came to audio mixing - a 3-D approach. She created a flat touch screen that works through frustrated total internal reflection. Sanders says the ease of use of this device over a mixing board allows for intuitively determining the audio source location and makes mixing surround sound fun again.
