In 1960, Dr. Robert Hanson, an acoustic scientist at the Bell Telephone Labs, invented his own way of listening to music in stereo. His extra head had a tiny microphone in each ear which picked up the music just as the real ear would. Then, the music was relayed to genuine Dr. Rober Hanson. The extra head was needed so the microphones could be realistically placed in the ears instead of outside on the earphones. By taking off the dummy head and listening to what it hears when it stands on the table, Hanson has found that immobility destroyed the stereophonic effects of depth. The imperceptible head movements people make while listening to music help them tell how far away the source of the sound is.

Czech conceptual artist Jan Strmiska recently sought to raise money to fund the production of his invention, the Audiopill. It’s a pill-like device that you swallow that will play sound within your body (but not audible to anyone else).
When swallowed it starts beating within you innards at a preset BPM. Restless feeling will pump you up to insanity.
Audiopill (pill) will make you feel like you are standing in the middle of a concert hall with a powerful audiosystem inside your body. Or like you are standing in a factory workshop full metal working machines and ramming an impact drill into your stomach. The only diference is there’s an absolute silence all around and you are experiencing the music in perfect privacy and only from the inside.
