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

This is an on-test website using the raspberry Pi computer and a Cirrus Logic audio card, running headless at the command line, streaming from two microphones embeded into a dummy head with 3D printed ears, the secret for true 3D binaural recordings are simply down to using ears with a microphone at the entrance of the ear canal, when played back through headphones the sound experienced is that as if you were there - 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 own 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:

If you can't load a player when you try the links please go here http://www.videolan.org to download VLC, VLC is a great free program that can play all sorts of files, and can do many more things too! screen capture, stream, record streams, all sorts, and you will be able to listen and watch what happens from this site too - for now at least ;O)

If you would like to try VLC Player to watch Infrared CCTV live images of the garden, in VLC goto open a network stream and paste this into the address, without the quotes - it will take several second before you see any images, please wait at least 30 secs before closing VLC with a frown!"rtsp://awi3d.plus.com:554/user=admin_password=tlJwpbo6_channel=1_stream=0.sdp?real_stream"


Should work with Internet explorer/firefox/chrome with the correct plugins - Enjoy your stay!

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

Below is an image of my Raspberry Pi in the back garden, with Frank "the terrorist" binaural head microphone
