WOW – What a ride!

Thank you to all the backers on Kickstarter for making this project a success.  Only five more days to go but this project is already a great success.  Remember Soundlazer will only be available through Kickstarter so pledge now if you want one of your own.

The Soundlazer Kit that is available when you make a pledge on Kickstarter

This “Kit” is actually a fully functional Soundlazer circuit board with power supply and audio cable.  This is a low cost way to get started experimenting with ultrasonic sound waves and parametric speaker technology. All the schematics, instructions and other information will be made available on this website once the project is successfully funded.

Open Source and programmable

The Soundlazer has a built in programming port that interfaces with Analog Device’s Sigma Studio DSP developing environment.  An easy to use graphical interface allow you to create your own custom filters, compressors and other sound shaping algorithms to improve or change the characteristics of the sound beam any way you like.  The Soundlazer is […]

A close up of the Soundlazer circuit board

  The internal circuitry of the Soundlazer is very complex.  A digital signal processor fine tunes the audio before sending it to the oscillator which produces an electrical signal that turns on and off forty thousand times per second.  This 40KHZ signal is amplified and sent to the 39 ultrasonic emitters that produce the directional […]
