Welcome to Lan2Lan - if you can see this page we are up and streaming - Live Binaural Audio - Headphones required!

This is an on-test website using the raspberry Pi computer and a Cirrus Logic audio card, running headless at the command line, streaming from two microphones embeded into a dummy head with 3D printed ears, the secret are the ears! as when played back through headphones the sound experienced is that as if you were there, where the dummy head is - if a bird where to land on the dummy head, and you were listening to that through headphones, it would appear that the bird had landed on your own head!... the link to the left should open up a Icecast server web page to listen to the stream - This will be broadcasting all the time from my back garden, until it crashes or I switch it off from time to time

The "Raspberry Pi" is a very small computer running an image downloaded from here:

CCTV of Frank in garden - just click quicktime or VLC in the dropdown "Format" and click channel 1


Should work with Internet explorer/firefox/chrome with the correct plugins - Enjoy your stay!

Below is an image of my Raspberry Pi in the back garden
