Welcome to awi3d.plus.com - The only livestreaming binaural dummy head on the Internet? if you can see this page we are (should be) up and streaming - Live Binaural Audio - Headphones required!

This website is using the raspberry Pi computer, running headless at the command line, a second raspberry pi is streaming binaural audio from two microphones embeded into a dummy head with silicone human ear replicas, when played back through headphones the sound experienced is that as if you were there - 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 live 24/7 stream

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