K6 – Telephone Box

This is a 1937 K6 telephone box in our front garden. I am currently modifying it to explore my research interests in computer voices and performance. The first event was Chrismas Eve 2015. You can read more about it in a number of postings. Search for ‘K6’ or ‘telephone box’ or ‘Marge.’ It is an ongoing (for ever) project. My next step is to experiment with live broadcasting and some level of speech recognition.

Hear a very basic live audio stream from inside the box below- Safari and Ipad/phones only I think.

or in iTunes – click on M3U – double click on the download and iTunes should stream it.

This is a faff due too fact that I bought an onvif only camera – because it was cheap.

A very faffy but equally slow and low res version can be accessed by following these steps
