Technology Lamphone will allow you to eavesdrop on a conversation using normal bulbs

Researchers from the University of Ben-Gurion (Israel) developed a method for the recovery of a conversation by observing the usual friendly technology called “Lamphone”. As it turned out, when hit by sound waves on the surface of the bulb creates vibrations, causing microscopic fluctuations of light.

Hanging from the ceiling light simultaneously acts as a diaphragm, on a surface which is covered by a cascade of sound waves, and as a Converter that transformerait pressure sound vibrations in the subtle changes of light. Thus, the intelligence agencies had at their disposal another means for wiretapping.

According to researchers, all that is needed for “Lamphone” is a laptop, telescope, microphone, and a remote electro-optical sensor that converts light into an electrical signal.

To test their device, the researchers organized the ground on the pedestrian bridge 25 metres from the office on the third floor in a commercial building. Their goal was a simple 12-watt led light bulb, watching where they were able to recover speech and music sounding inside the office.

For this purpose they used three telescopes with different diameters of the lenses 10, 20 and 35 centimeters and was established electro-optical sensor on each lens of the telescope for each session. Using analog-to-digital Converter, the researchers received information about a vibration in the bulb, and then treated it with a special algorithm. As a result, they got a voice recording of trump, which is able to recognize Speech-To-Text API from Google and write “Let It Be” Beatles, that was able to recognize Shazam.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
