Microcone is a strange looking device and an innovatively way to capture group conversations. Using just a single microphone array device, Microcone can record individuals within six different directions on six separate audio channels, so you won’t need to purchase multiple microphones or spend time setting them up for your groups. As well as providing a single, high-quality audio channel of the conversation, when used with multi-channel capable audio software, the Microcone provides a dedicated audio channel for each of the six recording directions. This audio is also complemented with information about when and where voice activity occurs in each region. The ability to produce multiple directional audio streams together with speech activity and location information even offers the ability to independently control levels for each person in a group. To control the microphone, you need Microcone Console, a simple software application included as part of the Microcone device driver installation on Mac OS X and Windows. [Microcone via GizWiz]

I'm left-right brained which is both a blessing and a curse but never boring.
