Back in the early 2000, I read one of my all time fav book, The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. And among many cool things he talked about was what was termed holographic sound. It described a process where soun was recorded using prosthetic ear and prosthetic ear canal and skull to capture sound that is so real and surround that you could swear that you are there. It was only in 2006 that I got to experience it first hand and it blew my mind.
It is great to know that this technology is now becoming mainstream. The mainstreaming of this technology is also tied to the resurgence of virtual reality in recent years with companies like Occulus Rift and also Sony exploring sounds that creates a more immersive experience.
