Second Prototype–The Read Letter Part

After I realized it is hard for people to make good quality ASMR sound by themselves, I start thinking of a new way of making personalized sound. By the conscious of  the lack of communication in the tribe of ASMR, I want  to help them expressing feelings by writing letters to others. I intend to make the letter in the shape of scroll, and let a motor to make it turn. Their will be a light sensor and led beneath and above the letter to ‘read’ it, the light signals will shift to digital signals and pass to computer. It will… More

First Prototype

This is my original  thought of the device that could produce self-made ASMR sound. It is constructed by two parts. The upper part is an radio recorder that people could carry around during day time. At night, the sound would be transported to part B.

It could support some people’s habit of thinking over what… More

Some References

1.The Missing Voice (Case Study B) – Janet Cardiff 1999 The Missing Voice is an sound project in which Janet use sound to tell a detective story and guid listeners to work around an urban area. The introducing of 3D audio make the journey more believable and gives a feeling that people are experiencing ‘two realities at once'(). It is a period of time that could be repeated, and the library in the soundwalk disappeared since 2005, so it could be a tour that can experience not existed sights. I’m just not sure when is this kind of meaning is… More
