ambient addition

December 26th, 2006

Damn, the MIT media lab people do such cool work — “Ambient Addition” is Noah Vawter’s thesis experiment with sound; it’s a iPod-sized device that records and loops the sounds of the world around the listener. Watch the video, it’s like a much more useful Bhudda Machine, a gizmo which (much like the Thingamagoop) I always liked in theory but not in practice.

    Very true. There’s some pretty cool stuff coming out of the Lemmelson Center these days. though. We may have been there just a bit early.

    An interesting concept from Noah Vawter at the MIT Media Lab. Via
