Sounds of Street View
Experience Street View with sound !
Created by Amplifon, Sounds of Street View is a very great experience, try the tour for some great examples.
Google Street View is the go-to application for exploring the world digitally, but it has a missing ingredient which we take for granted day in, day out. It’s one of the most important human senses, which affects how we observe the world and how we interact, such as giving us an ultimate sense of direction or knowing when danger is upon us – Sound. Thousands of people every day experience the world digitally without this key sense, and it’s our wish at Amplifon to fill this void.
Sounds of Street View is a digital explorative sound experiment by Amplifon which gives users a 3-dimensional sound experience in a Street View environment. Utilising the Web Audio API platform, sounds are designated as though they were ordinary Google Maps markers, but instead of an image and information being assigned to the marker, a sound is instead.
