Echo - echo..echo...Anecho

If you've ever had the chance to step into an audio reflection free room (AKA Anechoic Chamber) you'll know that it is a deeply strange experience. Because we are so reliant on using reflections of sound from our environment to position ourselves in space, many people actually experience, dizziness, vertigo or even fall over if they're in there too long. They're often used to test microphones or loudspeaker frequency responses...but apparently other sorts of signals too. Anyway...New Scientist has the scoop.
