OTTO Sound Amplifier

Christina Crouch - Jan 29, 2008

I’m fond of white noise, in fact, I’m quite dependent on it because silence bothers me. I feel a whole lot better about that fact now that I’ve seen the OTTO sound amplifier… I’m not the only one out there who feels this way.


OTTO, which is Greek for ear, uses a thin polymer piezoelectric contract to sense weak vibrations (hidden sounds) and makes them audible through an integrated speaker. You can put it just about anywhere via its suction cups and magnets.


So, if you’ve ever wanted to hear the sound of ice melting or you desire to hear the light breeze as it creeps across your window, you now know where to turn. I have to say, it’s a little but much for me and I’ll just stick with a fan and the TV on low.
