You're Surrounded

The Screen Savers had an excellent January 30 episode featuring a couple of new twists on surround sound. Jack Buser, manger of game development for Dolby Labs, showed off a pair of wireless headphones that deliver full 5.1 surround sound. How did they pull this off? "We reverse-engineered your head." Herbie Hancock has created "an unprecedented live concert experience" by incorporating a surround sound deck and engineer. "The first time Hancock heard the live surround sound at work, 'it blew my mind,' he says. And this coming from a man who played for seven years with Miles Davis. Such a mind is not easily blown." (Screen Savers devotees: I'm missing those lost thirty minutes. I feel sure you feel my pain.)
