Default Audio Pixels

Just found out about the new loudspeaker technology being developed by an Australian company called 'Audio Pixel'. Very interesting, and I'd have thought, one to watch for the future.
Take a look 'n see for yourself.

Yes, some actual measured results from prototype speakers would be very helpful. I'll be watching this with interest for sure!

NXT all over again, but smaller!

9 years of work and nothing other than a hand holding a chip.

I do not think a comparison with NXT is appropriate as the technology used is completely different from what I understand.
Maybe it will not fullfill the claims made about it, but I for one will follow with great interest.
Sooner or later a new technology will arrive that will usurp all moving coil loudspeakers. Electrostatic speakers have failed and just about every other technological alternative has remained in the niche realm. This, or a derivative of it, may just be what will succeed.
Who knows?

Array of small transducers doing something magical... sounds exactly the same.

Did you read the technological description of the transducer chips and watch the video? I am far from being an expert on this but I can envisage that when the technology is let loose on creative manufacturers a whole gamut of interesting sound producing products will emerge.

Xmax will be limited to no more that 0.1mm. They talk about impedance matching, but that would require a horn of some sort, which you can't fit in a TV. No one appears to have heard one working after 9 years of development. Not even a prototype.

There is nothing on their technology page that suggests it works. Just a picture of a mems chip. No completed speaker, no technology demonstrators. So to me it looks to good to be true.
