Holosonics announced their next-generation laser-like sound system, with improved performance and lower cost.

The Audio Spotlight, invented by Holosonics founder Dr. F. Joseph Pompei while a graduate student at MIT, uses ultrasonic energy to create extremely narrow beams of sound that behave like beams of light. By "shining" the sound to one location, specific listeners can be targeted with sound - without others nearby hearing it. This degree of sonic control, unmatched by any other sound system in the world, permits a wide range of new audio applications - from retail and museum displays to personal television viewing.
Technical Specification.
