Listen here brings sounds of the city to life
23 May 2012
The UK designer behind the Listen Here concept would like to give tourists a chance to hear audio from all over a town without having to actually go to each place. With microphones at different locations transmitting data to a central map, tourists would be able to simply point at a different and hear live ambient sound from all around a city.
Listen Here was developed by Nicola Hume, a Product Design graduate from the University of Aberdeen in the UK. The goal of the project was to encourage tourists to experience more than just the popular sightseeing spots and get a true feel for the town as a whole. Reports Gizmag.
