We are able to perceive sound thanks to our brain decoding all the various frequencies collected through our inner ear. This is not just done with the ear but also directly through our skull. This is now being utilised through technology like google glass. This is thanks to mathematical and computational models by researchers to understand the whole process — bone conduction — works. Along with technologies such as Google Glass, it is looking to be utilised in medical equipment, their paper was published this week in Nature Communications.
It looks very slick and sounds even more futuristic than Tron. The trailer for it below gives bites of the new Harley Davison sound.
