• Owl’s Chair amplifies sounds using parabolic-disk-like headrests

  • we just came across an astounding piece of furniture that could pretty much help decrease the use of digital sound amplifiers in theaters and cinema halls or at home too! Called the Owl’s Chair, this seating arrangement by Wei Liang Lin uses the same principles that owls use for hearing. Using headrests inspired by those parabolic disk microphones used to capture the sounds of birds, these chairs help amplify sound waves directed towards them. A person seated on a chair like this can hear sounds directed towards him or her clearer and at higher volumes, without having to digitally amplify the sounds.
