Lego Down! Focused Vibrations Knock Over Minifigures #ASA181
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

To demonstrate the power of focused vibrations, researchers use speaker shakers to generate vibrations in a plate. They place Lego minifigures on the plate, choose a target, and measure the impulse response between each shaker and the target location. Playing that very response from the shakers, but reversed in time, creates sound waves that constructively interfere at the target minifigure. The focused energy knocks over the single Lego minifig without disrupting the surrounding minifigs.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins APL team aim to create an ideal baby monitor that alerts parents when their baby needs attention but does not transmit or amplify sound from other sources. The project uses open-source audio processing hardware, originally intended for hearing aids, to filter out unwanted noises that may lead parents to turn down their baby monitor volume and potentially miss infant cries. They plan to keep babies' whole frequency range in mind as they explore signal processing options.

Food Paradox Answer Shows How Ocean Life Survives #ASA181
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Ocean predators cannot survive on average concentrations of food found in the water. Instead, they survive by exploiting small patches of food-rich areas peppered throughout the world's waterways. Using active acoustics, researchers found the ocean is widely populated with narrow hotspots of activity. Traditionally, these hotspots are missed with conventional sampling tools, but locating them can provide dynamic layered maps of ocean life. The findings signify ocean food and biota as patchy, varying with depth and location, suggesting animals must find and exploit small-scale aggregations of resources.

Build Your Own Office Podcast Studio #ASA181
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Converting newly emptied office spaces into podcast studios poses noise challenges not previously realized before hybrid offices began. Offices are less busy and less noisy, meaning recording spaces can be used more often, and newly empty private offices can become podcast studios. But existing spaces present multiple acoustic challenges -- single-glazed windows, nearby noise sources, and limited available surface area, to name a few. Experts recommend considering location, nearby noise sources, and ways to absorb sound to make a studio effective.

Filtering and removing the microplastics from water is a difficult task, but acoustic waves may provide a solution. Researchers have developed a filtration prototype that uses two speakers to create acoustic waves. The force produced by the waves separates the microplastics from the water by creating pressure on a tube of inflowing water. As the tube splits into three channels, the microplastic particles are pressed toward the center as the clean water flows toward the two outer channels.
