Berlin's Boomroom Plays Sounds Only You Can Hear (and Touch)

5975533544113658628.png When they have heard it, pretending to pluck it out of the marble deletes the message. If this sounds outlandish, it's because it is. There are, however, very real-world applications for this kind of technology. The precise-targeting of sounds, for instance, could make life a lot easier for the seeing impaired. Instead of using a cane to tap http://rafaelylck.hazblog.com/ their way around a room, specific objects could make a sound indicating their location, and only the blind person would hear them. In a car, so-called "hypersound" speakers could http://georgepnod.soup.io/post/389216898/Katy-Perry-Launches-Prismatic-World-Tour-With ensure that only the driver hears the GPS instructions. This technology isn't just in Berlin. In California, hypersound speakers are being tested in McDonald's (of all places) so that the TVs in the restaurant blast the audio to specific tables. Sounds incredible, huh?

China Expels Journalists Over Stories Of Party's Wealth

5974939430619658742.jpg Chinese journalists cannot cover stories the regime wants kept quiet, but in the age of the Internet, stories by Western news media can make their way into China. The stories China targets most are those that expose the tremendous wealth owned by close relatives of top Communist Party leaders. China is not targeting the reporters who write the stories but the news organizations that employ them. China has sentenced to long terms Chinese citizens who called for an accounting of what the Communist Party owns. "Our two countries should be expanding media exchanges to enhance mutual understanding and trust, not restricting the ability of journalists to conduct their work," said U.S. Embassy spokesman Nolan Barkhouse. "We have raised our concerns about http://gilbertcums.sosblogs.com/The-first-blog-b1/Ontario-Guide-Dogs-Acclimate-To-The-Airport-b1-p2.htm the treatment of journalists and media organizations repeatedly at the highest levels of the Chinese government, and company website we will continue to do so." Barring a last-minute, and highly unlikely, change of heart by the Chinese government, New York Times reporter Austin Ramzy will fly out of Beijing on Thursday, the day his visa expires. Ramzy, 39, will become the second reporter for the newspaper in 13 months forced to leave mainland China.
