The first ever 3D prints of images contained in dolphin echolocation sounds have been produced—including one of a human being seen from a dolphin's point of view.
Jack Kassewitz, from SpeakDolphin.com, said, "When we discovered that dolphins not exposed to the echolocation experiment could identify objects from recorded dolphin sounds with 92% accuracy, we began to look for a way for to see what was in those sounds."
To this end, Kassewitz turned to John Stuart Reid, inventor of the CymaScope, a device that transfers sonic vibrations into images on the surface of water.
Process used to collect a dolphin's view of humans underwater:
Reid explains, "When a dolphin scans an object with its high frequency sound beam, each short click captures a still image, similar to a camera taking photographs. Each dolphin click is a pulse of pure sound that becomes modulated by the shape of the object."
From there, 3D image files were created and prints were made.
Yet, Kassewitz's vision stretches a bit further. He noted, "I feel certain that dolphins would love the chance to speak with us. We are getting closer to making that possible."
