About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

“Personal audio space” on the horizon

By Randy | May 17, 2007

I read an interesting article in Discovery News yesterday. Seems researchers at Microsoft have figured out a way to recreate the headphone experience, sans headphones. The technology uses an array of speakers that cancel out sound signals so that someone 5 feet away can’t hear what the other person is hearing. They still have some bugs to work out, but an interesting read nonetheless.

I can imagine all sorts of cool applications for this technology. As the world continues to become more and more heavily populated and crowded, we are going to need some kind of virtual “happy place” and a quiet space that’s all our own.
