The American physicists developed special algorithm which will allow turning the mobile phone with a stereo microphone into the peculiar echolocation. The echolocation algorithm is capable to receive exact three-dimensional “mold” of the room on a sound of click of fingers. By the words of Ivan Docmanic (from Federal polytechnic school of Switzerland in Lausanne) their program can construct a three-dimensional map of the room with the permission in millimeter. Each microphone can catch both source sounds, and their echo. This program compares data from these microphones, and, being guided by delays in perception of sounds, calculates not only distance between them, but also a distance to walls and a sound source.
On July 18 the Lone Signal Company will send photos and text messages to space from mobile phones. The messages will be broadcast towards a star to Gliese 526, which is the red dwarf in Bootes constellation. There are planets round it, which atmosphere is similar to the terrestrial address. For throwing a signal rather far, Lone Signal rented a radio telescope of Jamesburg for thirty years. For the first time the ciphered message was sent towards a star congestion in Oat-flakes constellation, at distance of 25,000 light years from Earth. It went to space from a radio telescope of observatory of Aresibo (Puerto Rico) in November, 1974. The distance of Gliese 526 is 17,6 light years, and by 2050 we will be able to receive the answer.
