Redes 22: Flipar en colores

"Perciben colores al probar sabores, oyen melodías al tocar texturas o ven auras de colores alrededor de las personas. Son los sinestésicos, muchos con gran creatividad y sorprendente memoria. El neurocientífico David Eagleman, director del Laboratorio para la Percepción y la Acción de la University of Texas Medical School en Houston vuelve a Redes para abordar los pormenores de la sinestesia." –Redes

Sound Becomes Light

Una investigación reciente ha confirmado que las ondas acústicas de frecuencias altas se pueden convertir a luz.

"Researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California successfully converted sound waves to light radiation by reversing a process that transforms electricity to sound, which is commonly used in cell phones. This is the first time that sound has been converted to light." www.popsci.com

Neon Lamp Traces Sound Wave

"That’s a sound wave you see in the picture above. Here demonstrating how an acoustic lens focuses sound from a horn, the wave was made visible with the device at left —an aluminum rod with a microphone and a neon lamp at the end. A small motor swings the rod in a wide arc, scanning the area. The microphone picks up the sound and turns it into electric current to feed the lamp. Wherever the sound is strongest, the light is brightest, and the wave is traced out. A complete sound photo, such as this from Bell Labs, takes 10 minutes exposure."
