Super Microphone Lets You Zoom In to Conversations

In the image above, you’ll be able to see a large yellow dot attached to the underside of the screens. This is a Super Microphone that has 300 microphones inside along with a camera along side it. What it does is allows users to zoom in to any conversation in the basketball court to listen in to what people are saying.

The idea behind it is that you can zoom in on conversations and listen to what the ref has to say, or each individual player if needed.

The system works by tracking where the person is and adding the sounds of each microphone together that can pick up a particular voice.

The results can be seen in the video below.
