Welcome to awi3d.plus.com - The only live streaming binaural dummy head on the Internet? if you can see this page we are (should be) up and streaming - Live Binaural Audio - Headphones required!

Above (if live) is an experimental live stream using a raspberry pi computer, a Logitech C920 webcam, and an SR3Di USB binaural microphone. Google Chrome seems to have clean audio whereas FireFox has a few pop issues, the camera and microphone are just in side the foliage of a buddleia bush in full bloom - this is why there are so many insect noises!. Please reduce the volume on your headphones to about 30% (yes that low!) or just about under half volume for the best binaural experience if you have good hearing.

If the stream isn't shown, it maybe due to the time of day, or other reason, but you can always listen to 'Frank' in the garden 24/7/365

This website you are accessing is using another raspberry Pi computer,a third raspberry pi is streaming binaural audio from an SR3Di USB binaural microphone, which is also embeded into a dummy head for extra 'external perception', when played back through headphones the sound experienced is that as if you were there - for example, if a bird where to land on the dummy head, and you were listening to that through headphones, it would appear that the bird had landed on your head!... the link to the left should open up a Icecast server web page to listen to the live 24/7 stream

The "Raspberry Pi" is a very small computer running an image downloaded from here:

This binaural audio stream in my back garden is part of a global open mic network initiated and hosted by locus sonus
