Designer/artist/educator Alex Braidwood wanted to hear Los Angeles better, so he attached "two footlong copper tubes on a pair of professional grade headphones" and added "rubber stoppers that suction in and out - to add some mechanical rhythm." He tells KPCC: "I wanted it to be as visual as it was experiential?I wanted to peak people's curiosity enough that they would be interested in putting it on." He's working on an iPhone app. [SCPR, image via]
