Steve Martin would be proud

I saw this article and couldn’t help but think of Steve Martin’s classic bit from his Comedy Is Not Pretty album, “Googlephonics.” If you haven’t heard it, here’s the Spotify link. Dolby’s big idea here is to fill the walls, ceiling, floor, maybe your pants, with speakers, and use metadata to determine where the sound comes out and how loud it should be. Now I’m no audiophile, all my songs are plain ol’ CD-quality MP3, but I have to think that if they did this right it would be really awesome.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
