NOUS sonic is an interactive audio system that lets you control digital sounds through motion in space. The system experiences sound individually and interactively - far better than any audio guide can do. It conveys three-dimensional auditory and multimedia experiences for museum visitors and is a live-set-up tool that allows real-time creation and placement of audio exhibits. Moving around the room/exhibition space or turning your head causes sounds to be triggered or stopped; tonality, volume, and angle of sound sources then change. By centimeter-accurate and motion-sensitive localization of the user, the operation of a human ear is digitally replicated and supplemented. Everything audible and so far unknown can be experienced immersively via the NOUS sonic headphones.
The visitor areas are equipped with UWB-antennas. By detailed location data of indoor location receiver UWB-Technology, the combination of indoor position & head alignment can be accurately determined to within 10cm. A Real-World-Orientation-Sensor used in robotics to determine position, inclination, rotation, or orientation is built into the NOUS sonic headphones. When the Configurator app is connected or paired with a NOUS sonic headphone, it can be used to walk through the created immersive audio scenarios. This allows curators & artists to customize the audio experience in real-time on-site.The specially designed and built-in lightweight module (<100g) fits on any headphones. Sonic AIO (All in One) renders the sound right into the module, no other devices are needed.
