 Project objective

MetaSonics is an acoustic metamaterial technology that shapes sound (and ultrasound) fields. Our solution is to build an adjustable device that transforms an input acoustic wave into a time-variable, user-defined acoustic field. MetaSonics comprises of a surface made of electronically adjustable acoustic metamaterial bricks. Each brick in the surface can individually vary the phase of an incident acoustic field in order to shape the complex output field. Our vision is to manipulate sound waves using advances in acoustic meta-materials to create novel interactive applications. We see an opportunity to be the world leaders in the design, manufacturing and distribution of MetaSonics a form of Spatial Sound Modulators (SSM) to shape the complex sound fields. MetaSonics has the opportunity to be ubiquitous as LCDs.

Our devices will introduce an extremely cost-effective, reconfigurable, very compact and uniquely scalable technology solution. At this stage our potential markets include all applications that require shaped sound fields. This links us to a large and diverse range of potential markets, all of which offer business opportunities.

Our focus within this PoC will be to create prototypes, develop commercial traction and develop an exploitation strategy.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "METASONICS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
