Jungle Studios Unveils Sound Recording Robot that Hears Like a Human

Jungle Studios has announced the arrival of their newest member of their engineering team – Bert.His creator Georg Neumann called him KU100 but the agency decided to go with something far more memborable.

So what can Bert do?

Well he’s actually rather clever as he was designed to record binaural sound in 3D – the same way we hear. It’s down to the way the sound is shaped by his head size, weight, pinnae, ear canals, etc. before it reaches the actual microphones buried deep in his head.

When you listen to a recording that Bert has made, it’ll feel very much like you were there with him. His work is best listened to on headphones (which these days isn’t the issue it once was) but you’ll be pleased to know his stereo work played on ordinary speakers sounds great too.

Check out what he sounds like in this video:
