Crisp Packet Microphone

To take something very complicated, such as our hearing, and massively simplify it – we don’t hear sound, we feel it. That’s why this piece of video is believable whilst at the same time being jaw-droppingly frightening and wow at the same time.

A research team from MIT have discovered a method for extracting audio from visual information and even recovering intelligible speech from the vibrations of a crisp packet.

I imagine an underground bunker where intelligence agency staff are guffawing at how late we are to this game.
