Silence can be so uncomfortable. Even when you’re chilling with friends, there’s that awkward silence that is deafening with its nothingness. Otto (Greek for “ear”) is a device which you can hook up to just about any dynamic object or situation to hear sounds that are otherwise inaudible.
Otto then amplifies the sound, creating a whole new ambient experience. For example, hook Otto up to a glass of water and drift into the noise of ice clinking together and liquid motion. A combination of suctions and magnets allows Otto to be hooked to just about anything.
