Just how much does your brain functionality affect what you hear? Your gut reaction to that question might be "not a lot," but the staff at the Exploratorium, a hands-on science museum in San Francisco, asks you to reconsider that position with its new Sound Uncovered app for iPad. According to the Exploratorium, you ultimately owe your sense of hearing "not so much to your two ears as to what's between them."
I don't want to give too much away, since the fun of Sound Uncovered is discovering things for yourself, but I will leave you with some questions: how much does what you see affect what you hear? How old are your ears--really? Can blind people ride bikes? Why does your co-worker's clicking pen annoy you? Sound Uncovered will answer all of these questions, and more.
