3D Printed Binaural Microphone Has Ears, Literally


GilbertPot shared on Thingiverse:

‘HeadLight’ 3d binaural microphone

I have been experimenting with binaural microphones so my first effort was to make a binaural dummyhead of a 3d scan of my own head..It’s heavily decimated to make it more ‘generic’. Still working on this one..It’s also quite large to print so i had to split the model in 4 pieces…
I have also been developing this binaural microphone based on similar desgns like the 3Dio 3d mic.
My goal was to create something that was cheaper, fun to build, and also pleasing to the eye instead of looking too ‘studio’.
Just for aesthetics i added a lens that lights up when spoken into the mic.

Since this is all still work in progress I’havent uploaded all 3D models yet…just the head for now

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
