35 Days of gift ideas countdown: #17: The conversation cone!

From the Tech Views blog.

Let the countdown continue... It's the gift-giving season, and I'm here to give some gadget options for those on your gift list (even yourself). This series will last through the holidays.

Day 17: A New Way to Record Group Conversations

Instead of relying on individual notes of group meetings or conferences, the new Microcone offers professionals an easy way to record these discussions. With the single microphone arraty device, the system can record people around it from six different directions.

It records them onto six different audio channels, so that users can break them down to easily understand each speaker, or use in conjunction with a voice recognition system to automatically produce transcripts. Other benefits include the ability to independently control levels for each person in a group, improved group voice transcription and rich surround sound reproduction of a conversation. Available for Windows and Mac. From $359.
