Sometimes traffic can cause tempers to flare and fills people with road rage. To help people deal with these potentially dangerous emotions, app developer Matt Reed created Blow Up Traffic, an app that uses augmented reality to help drivers release tension on the road.

To use Blow Up Traffic, users simply need to mount their phone into a windshield holder and are then able to “blow up” the cars in front of them by yelling, cursing or honking.

The app uses an algorithm that detects the level of sound inside the car. Users don’t need to touch or swipe the screen of their phones. They simply need to let their rage out by screaming or raising their voice and shouting commands like “Fire!” to watch the car in front of them virtually blow up on the screen of their phones.

The app is available on iTunes.

Watch a demo of how the app works in the video below.
