"Developed by two physicists from the University of Norway, the new super microphone can pick out single voices in a mob of people. [...] hundreds of smaller microphones collected together in the same carbon fiber disk. Measuring about a meter across, the AudioScope array contains 300 individual mics and a camera with wide angle lens. Visual cues from the camera help the system estimate distances, which allows it to precisely time when sounds should arrive at each microphone. “Sophisticated signal processing algorithms” then combine the hundreds of feeds into one audio stream. With pinpoint targeting, AudioScope can listen to specific areas in its field of view, amplifying quiet sounds to audible levels."Cool!
