I seem to recall an ad in a magazine (Wired, perhaps) for a device that
could attach to glass and make that glass sort of act as a speaker and
resonate the input signal of the device.
Anybody know where I might find out more about that?
Thanks for any help.

I've seen these a number of years ago. I have no idea of who is selling them
these days, if they are on the market at all. I did not find the results too
impressive. They are okay, if you need some soft music or noise, and you are
not critical about how it sounds. Different glass gave a different type of
sound. This made their accuracy very poor.

I remember seeing something like that in the PartsExpress
catalog (but I couldn't find it on the www.partsexpress.com
website)

They are not very "high-fidelity" and putting them on glass
is one of the worse places I can think of. I certainly would
not expect decent music reproduction, and even voice-
quality would be poor.

I believe IBM is offering something of this sort in conjunction with a
touch-screen technology that can work through existing glass, so an
existing storefont window can be turned into an interactive information
kiosk... But I don't know any of the details. And that isn't usually an
application which requires high fidelity audio, so...

Hope that gets you pointed in the right direction, anyway.

Might help to avoid those 'bounce a beam off the window and record the
conversation in the room' type surve....

I've said too much.
