Fringe’s Observers Science in Real Life: Passive Recovery of Sound from Vibrations [Video]


If you’ve watched Fringe, you’ve probably seen the observers recover conversations by scanning the surface of glass for slight disturbances, even long after said conversations took place. In the following video, scientists recover sound by observing objects near the source of the sound for micro vibrations, and it works! Ok, it’s not quite like what the observers are doing in Fringe, but it’s near!
