Mobile Surround Sound

Control Application

Control Application

This is a small project which we put together to show that four N95 can be used for surround sound :D . Basically we used four mobile phones as speakers and a laptop to control them. The phones were connected to a laptop via WiFi. This allowed us to sync the starting time of a music clip. The laptop is then used to set the virtual sound source anywere in the room (see image on the right). Setting the sound source will adjust the volume on each of the four N95 automatically. This gives the illusion that the sound is really at the position you have set on your pc.
