Audiograph: Superhero Hearing

We have a limited range of hearing, defined primarily by volume and distance. As one moves further away from a constant sound, it becomes quieter. What if it didn't have to? Audiograph looks at how positional and orientation information can help us bridge distance barriers for audio, and create seamless audio interactions between individuals, places, and information. Applications include social interactions, serendipitous encounters, navigation, and a re-evaluation of phones and remote audio-based communication.
