If you ever thought about what sound shifting would look like, then the Wassiliscope is here to answer all of your questions. This telescope converts light into sound with amazing scientific accuracy.

Each sense is specific and useful in its own way, but when you can combine senses to create something ubiquitous, it can be truly amazing. Who said magic and science couldn't play well together?

Christopher Yamane created the sound shifting Wassiliscope and the telescope like device uses light waves and turns them into sound waves. The device uses the varying degrees of light in color to be able to match it with an individual sound wave. The light waves are thrown through a triangular oscillator in the device and outputted to the headphones attached to the device so one can literally look at anything and receive a different sound.
