Visualizing Sound in AR

AR Sound Visualization

As we start to explore the possibilities of augmented reality, we should keep in mind that AR isn't limited to just visual. Zach Lieberman, who helps runs the School For Poetic Computation in New York City, built a real time sound map using Apple’s ARKit and OpenFrameworks.

Lieberman's demo maps captured sounds in 3D space. It's an intriguing juxtaposition of senses. Imagine a sound scavenger hunt, or 3D mapping in the dark, or audio-trails, in 3D, for the visually impaired.
