Timo Kauppila, Pyry Taanila and Mikelis Studers have designed a new type of microphone called the Catchbox which has been designed to provide an easier way to the the audience engaged in a discussion or debate.
The Catchbox throwable microphone has been designed to provide users with a professional wireless microphone, that communicates with a receiver and can be connected to any sound system. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Catchbox throwable microphone project and see it in action.
To eliminate any unwanted noises when the Catchbox is being thrown around, internal electronics sense the motion of the throwable microphone and switch off the audio when it is caught, thrown,or dropped.
“The Catchbox got started more than one year ago at Aalto University, Finland. After seeing countless lectures and conferences where it was difficult to ask audience members questions, the founders decided something had to be done. Product developers at heart, the team set about to create the world’s first throwable microphone that could be easily passed from one audience member to the next, making events more engaging and fun.”
