WO 2003093950 A3
Abstract
Individuals share music through portable audio devices (100) that synchronously play music by transmitting music signals from one device (unit A) to the other (unit B). Upon request, other individuals can join such a sharing group as a member, and these new members can either be accepted automatically, or through voting by existing group members. So that members of a group can converse, the fraction of ambient sound admitted by the earphones of the portable device (100) can be manually set. In order to enhance the enjoyment of the music, wearable transducers (240, 250, 260), such as light emitting diodes, respond to signals related to the beat of the music. Signals can be automatically generated, or manually specified, and signals thereafter stored for playback with the music to which it is related. Wearable transducers associated with individuals at a large music event can be set to receive common signals such that the transducers (240, 250, 260) respond in synchrony with one another.
