Arguably the coolest tech company of the moment with arguably the most one of the most publicly embarassing hobby.. ever. Apple and Karaoke; discuss.
A recent patent application by Apple suggests a future iDevice would be able to sense and gauge the user’s dulcet tones against a pre-existing musical score.
The system could also change the output going to speakers or headphones, giving audio feedback through a positive “concert hall effect” or a more negative “fuzz”- making mistakes noticeable to even the tone-deaf.
Less impressive, perhaps is the ability to record performances and edit later, with a cool digital sound wave display showing how you fared on your interpretation of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.
As the guys at Pocket-Lint point out, there’s already a karaoke section up in iTunes – the content’s already there.
