Abstract

We present an auditory interface called Visual Resonator. The wearer of this interface can hear a voice or auditory information only from the direction in which he/she is facing, and can send his/her voice only in the direction towards which he/she is facing. Therefore, individuals who are within sight of each other can have a conversation, even if they are not close enough to talk directory. In addition, the speech that has taransmitted by an individual could be relayed, and then received by other people looking at the same object. This interface promotes communication between people who are within sight of each other and people with the same interests.
