Virtual Haircut

I have my hair cut done at Bench Fix, and never thought I could have a home service.

For those lazydoodles out there, I hereby proud to present to you, the first of its kind - Virtual Haircut.

  • Plug your earphones,
  • Maximize your volume,
  • Spare 4 minutes of your time,
  • Listen, you'll get your new hairdo in no time.




Cool isn’t it. I felt like I received a barber's massage too - relaxing.

So how they were able to come out with this? An ordinary MP3 doesn’t offer alike virtual sound.

This has been recorded through Binaural recording. It is the principle of replicating the way our ears capture sounds, and when played the sounds felt like real and occurring.  

So how will you be able to produce such sound? You will need the following:

  1. A dummy head
  2. Omnidirectional Microphones. A special type of microphone that capture sounds in all angles.
  3. Electricity (Lol)

Recording is done in 3 simple steps:

  1. Attach the microphone on both ears of the dummy head. We will imitate how human transmits sound to the brain. If your eardrum is in your nose, then place it there.
  2. Plug the microphone to your recorder.
  3. Make that crazy sound, the sound that comes naturally.

Wohoo! I love my new haircut today. 



Cheers!
