Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Even while internal ringbacks are being developed, work continues in Japan on making external ringtones even more nifty.

Some of this hardware refinement for mobile phones sounds like it’ll yield nice results:

But researchers at DoCoMo have gone a step further, working on a next-generation 3D sound technology that would let mobile phones produce sounds that appear to come from different directions.

In a museum, for example, consumers could receive commentaries on their phones as if they were coming from the artifacts themselves, or a business executive could be on a three-way conference call via mobile phone and the other participants’ voices would sound as though they came from two different directions to avoid mix-ups.

It occurs to me that ventriloquists can use such technology to their advantage, too…
