Very cool. I'd heard of the French guy - de Martinville - who figured out how to record sound without figuring out how to play them back.

The video discusses him and his work and how First Sounds extracted the sounds he had recorded. Great stuff. :-)

Wow, that was some restoration job - what a clever way of recovering the waveform!
