Digital Sonic Fluidity

Just thought I'd share our future in acoustic transducers here, so we can all see what the "playing field" will look like. As Feynman said " There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom", well there is some great sound to be had at the micro scale before you get all the way to the bottom,, wherever that really is...
MEMS fabrication has been around for some time now, been making the systems used to make them, Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, and we are starting to see the fruition of that now in the audio field. Low moving mass with multiple transducers >1,000 and an array capable of operating in a phased array mode, damn what you can do with that spatially... especially when you can put multiples of these arrays in your cans, working in concert, think of the 'wave' with cheers going around the football stadium... and then they all stomp their feet at femto-once, well close to that;) Yes, IEM's are basically headed here, but not a fan, we truly hear with those cartilage-constructed, funny-looking sound shaping thingies call ears, I like a sound stage. Damping - no longer an issue; distortion - not really needed to be spoken about anymore - but we will-just cause...; DAC's - nope, just digital right until you move air... You can look here for more info; http://www.audiopixels.com.au/index.cfm/technology/ ; and of course videos are more fun and quicker to grasp; https://vimeo.com/73911683
Damn this will be fun...
FYI; I did send an email to the CEO asking about plans to put these in cans, will let you know if I hear anything back...
