Safety App Interrupts Music Listening With Real-World Alerts
The Audio Aware app runs in the background and listens for sounds of danger.
These days it’s easy to get distracted and lose awareness of our environment, especially when we’re busy with our gadgets and devices, but there is a soon-to-be-released app that’s designed to keep a lookout for sounds of danger.
Developed by a New York-based startup called One Llama, the Audio Aware app uses the company’s proprietary technology called Audio Intelligence, which mimics the way the human ear works and is designed to listen for certain sounds and alert the users to them. The system is designed not just for the hearing-impaired but also for users who tend to get distracted.
