Waves sniffer [ ★ ]
Stereo converter of electromagnetic fields in sound
A new way of listening the world
Sicily
We live in a world full of electronics, yet there is one thing for most of which we are unaware of. All the electrical equipment you have, including the device you're reading, has a magnetic field. Simply put, where there is electricity, there is magnetism, but in spite of everything, we have no real way of detecting these magnetic fields, until now! With this project you can listen to all the low frequency magnetic fields emitted by your electronic devices ..

With the wave sniffer you can listen to all the magnetic fields emitted by your electronic devices. It uses a very high quality opa1612 operation amplifier, As you will have understood The wave sniffer is a converter of electromagnetic waves into sound. Very useful for creating effects, soundscapes and textures, It uses a very high quality opa1612 operation amplifier.

★ Elecia and Chris White : Being able to hear EM is weird and cool idea. The implementation was good though we wished for a little more musicality (less buzzing, more tonal use) though of course that is a personal preference.
