Yes, it does look exceedingly amusing, but it is very very effective.
killing peripheral noise so you can hear the person talking on the phone?
I’ve always thought just designing phones to be more like phones would work better. But I’m informed by fashionistas that my spartphone isn’t meant to have decent audio, and that I need to invest in bluetooth earpieces if I want to actually be able to hear my conversation partner.
Very tempted to just kill a few kittens instead, yeah.
I should have put in a pic without the Dead Kitten. Underneath there is a set of Tascam stereo mics that plug into the iPhone to improve the recording quality. They’re not state-of-the-art microphones by any means, but if you imagine the audio equivalent of a good phone camera then you get the idea. The Dead Kitten allows me to use the rig outside, where, under many conditions, you can get a fair amount of air ruffle over the mics.
For a sound person, it’s great to have a way to instantly snatch sounds when you’re out and about. So far I have managed to grab (on the fly) the buzz of distant Formula 1 cars echoing through Melbourne city (an amazing and slightly apocalyptic sound) and a steam train that came past our house a few weekends back.
MISSY?? IS THAT YOU???
Missy, my feline would wander at home
From morning ’til nightime, and piteously moan.
Her intestinal gas caused all the mice to wear masks.
But now she breaks wind for an iPhone
Interesting non-resolving rhyme there, Anonymous.
I don’t think this product works very well. It records too much tribble and not enough bass.
Sir Atlas, you have geek cred in spades!!
Oh, don’t encourage him!
Sorry but I must!
Far out that is hard to do on my iPad
You can copy & paste, you know.
Um… I don’t know what to say except I now have the urge to tell my cat I love him very much
He’s go nothing to fear unless he’s extra fluffy. They make the best wind shields.
