Audio Aware App Amplifies Alerts, Alarms, Accidents

Say you’re walking down the street, distractedly listening to the music on your mobile device, just about to step off the curb. Wouldn’t you want to be aware of any nearby sirens or alarms going off? One Llama has developed an app that does it — it interrupts whatever is playing, and plays an amplified version of whatever sounds of danger it hears in your vicinity, including breaking glass and screeching tires. Neat technology, and potentially useful to people with hearing or cognitive disabilities.
