I googled sound technology 2012 instead of new art forms and discovered this link:
In short, its an Audio bar that is fully immersive no matter where you sit unlike some of the audio bars that have come out. This is called the Sonic Emotion 3D Audio Sound Bar. I like the idea since you don’t need to buy additional speakers for the rear or side, which can get expensive. There is an additional sub woofer you can buy for appropriating lower frequencies. This is one of the many products that came out in the CES (Consumer Electronics Show).
