Rockaway, a peninsula in Queens, New York City, was one of the many regions affected by -- and still recuperating from -- superstorm Sandy. The area's been without power since last week, and it doesn't look like it's coming back anytime soon.

Crowd Mics - Smartphones are wireless microphones

Crowd Mics - Smartphones are wireless microphones | Way Cool Tools | Scoop.it
Crowd Mics turns smartphones into wireless microphones. The audience can be heard over the room's sound system. Also includes text commenting and polling.
jspellos's insight:

Now this is really cool & clever.  Being able to use your smartphone in a conference as a wireless lav microphone.  No internet connection needed (though you do need a router).   It seems like a perfect app for public speakers to know about...as long as they're comfortable hearing from the crowd.

Lynn Rose's curator insight, February 26, 2015 10:31 AM

AMAZING to use if you're a speaker or need to present to a small room and want to be amplified on the go - or if you're filming or the uses are endless. COOL!  (I speak to thousands at a time but I love when I'm asked to speak to a small room or when I have my own small gatherings and this could be such a FUN solution - though real mics ARE, of course, preferred).   AND that it has commenting and polling, too?  WOW!

I'm really intrigued by this.  Seems like a no-brainer for conferences (as long as the wifi is working) to end the problem of multiple device connecting to LCDs, renting bulky switchers, etc.  Tempted to get a pre-order of it and see if the promise meets the potential.
