recently while playing call of duty and listing to music i figured if only i could at least see which direction the sound was coming from it might almost give me my advantage of hearing what direction the enemy are approaching while still listing to music. an app could be made for on screen visuals and or a sound light controller and lights or other visual device , could be used on current surround systems and or new updated systems for visual surround. could be made into cross platform units helping both hearing and non-hearing impaired alike being able to have visual surround** i could continue with many applications and app ideas but essentially a visual surround should be fairly easy to make versatile enough to be usable on most audio devices or apps

Hi Jefferey, Thanks for your comments. Spatial audio (or 3D sound) is precisely the 'surround sound' you mention, except that you can be immersed with just your headphones and do not require an array of speakers. To be truly immersed, one needs to track the head, but for gaming, the basic headphones will do.
