Lung mic array

Looking something akin to a Klingon inspired warrior vest, this microphone array from Deep Breeze listens to lung sounds from 42 separate locations to produce a map of chest wheezing, "cracklies" and sounds that obstructive deseases create during respiration.

This is one of many new developments in medical technology aided by the use of specialized microphonic sensors.
