Those stone acoustic things reminded me of a display at the Toronto Science Center that I saw many moons ago.

You could whisper into one and the sound would bounce and be received by the other clear as a bell. All without electronics.
In the Capitol Building in Washington, DC part of the guided tour includes a demonstration of the "sound focusing" effect of the dome. The tour guide directs everyone to stand at one focus point. He then goes to the other focus point and whispers a message. You can hear it as if he was standing next to you.

Wow, this 15" monitor isn't going to cut it for that pic.
A box of spaghetti dumped out onto a Google image of the world? During a solar eclipse?
