Ear Device Inspired from James Bond Movie.

In the movie sky fall 2012, James Bond wears an ear piece in his right ear at the Macau Casino. He uses it to communicate with Eve (Naomi Harris). It is not shown in the film that Eve is also wearing an earpiece. But, we can definitely assume that.Now, this earpiece is available for sale and it costs 12290$-1750$. So, if you are in a relation with someone who doesn’t speak your language or if traveling has become a challenge because you cannot translate what you wanted to ask for then science has invented something suitable for you.

Basically, it is a cool device that features a pair of ear pieces that translate languages instantly. One of the main aims for designing it is  to hug the curves of the ear without being obstructive but trendy and fashionable. It comes in three colors: red, black and white. The Pilot also comes with a secondary earpiece for wireless streaming music or for sharing with the person you are speaking with. Two people who do not speak the same language can wear it and use it to interact with one another.

An application on your smart phone will control the process of translation. The app toggles between languages and uploads them to the earpiece when used offline and overseas. Most people also use this app as a phrasebook for basic translation.

Why Music Affects Us

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 2

Music and language are uniquely human. A world without either would be hard to imagine. They are aspects of our need to communicate. So it could be said that, as is true of language, when music “speaks” our emotions “listen.”

Why and how does music speak to our emotions? To answer that, we need to consider: (1) the way that our brains process music; (2) our emotional makeup and cultural backgrounds, which influence our reaction to music; and (3) language, which can also affect our reaction.

Music and the Brain

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 1Some suggest that language and logic are predominantly functions of the left side of the brain, while music is processed in the right side of the brain, which deals largely with feelings and emotions. Whether this is so or not, it is obvious that music evokes spontaneous reactions from listeners.

There is a closer relation between hearing and emotional arousal than there is between seeing and emotional arousal. . . . Seeing a wounded animal or suffering person who is silent may produce little emotional response in the observer. But once they start to scream, the onlooker is usually powerfully moved.”

Music, Lyrics, and You

One school of thought maintains that a given piece of music has a similar effect on all listeners. However, another says that reaction to a melody or song reflects an individual’s present state of mind or previous experience. An example of this might be when someone who has lost a loved one in death hears a certain song. The song may bring back memories and cause sadness or even cause tears to well up in the bereaved person’s eyes. Others who are not in that situation may sing that same song with a joyful heart.

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 3jpgMusic helps to connect words or ideas with emotions. Hence, few television or radio advertisements are presented without musical accompaniment. Often the words do not make much sense. However, if the right background melody is used, the advertisement will play on the listeners’ emotions. How true it is that the aim of most advertising is to make buying an emotional response rather than a logical one!

Whereas advertising may have an undesirable effect on the public’s pocket, there is a much more serious downside to the power of lyrics and melody. Through lyrics repeated over and over again, songwriters teach adolescents to disregard others’ opinions and to “hang tough.” Moreover, the messages conveyed by controversial rap lyrics can permeate the emotional makeup of the listener and result in antisocial behavior.

So, to avoid contamination of the mind and the heart, we must be very selective in our choice of music.
