Audio technology company Turtle Beach has unveiled its brand new speakers, and they sure are swanky.
HyperSound Glass is billed as the world’s first transparent directional speakers, able to create directional audio using a transparent pane of glass – even if you don’t understand exactly how it works, it sounds cool, right?
Turtle Beach CEO Juergen Stark explained in a press release:
Being able to create highly directional audio using glass opens up many potential opportunities, including integrating into desktop monitors, commercial displays, desktop speakers, and automotive dashboard glass to provide warnings directed specifically at the driver… pretty much anywhere there’s glass there’s a potential for audio.
The tech is still fairly early in development, but Turtle Beach will be showing off the speakers publicly for the first time at E3 2016.
Similar to how a flashlight directs a beam of light, HyperSound directs a beam of audio to targeted listeners in a specific spot, delivering a properly immersive 3D-like audio experience – Listen to Dark Side of the Moon with these badboys and I suspect it’ll blow your nads off all over again.
If you’re looking to learn more about HyperSound technology (because I’ve probably explained it horrendously) head over to HyperSound Innovations.
