Hello, my name is Jeremy, and I am currently developing a product to facilitate a more awareness of sounds in ones home. I call it the Audial Illuminator, and it is being developed with the help of Microchip, and Digikey though an electronics design contest. Information about the contest is available here: myPIC32 - myPIC32, my project is available here: myPIC32 - Contestant Profile

Audial Illuminator (A.I.) seeks to solve a problem I have experienced in my home. There lacks a comprehensive solution to translating sounds in the home to some other medium be it light, or vibrations. A.I. will tirelessly listen to the environment through the use of small microphones placed thought ones home. When the microphone "hears" an event it recognizes, a knock on the door, the door bell, a kitchen timer, or a baby crying, it will notify several small lights in varying color patterns.

For instance, say you the user has designated purple to signify the front door, and orange to signify the the kitchen timer. You may carry the small lighted device with you, or attach it to a wall. When someone knocks on the door, it will send a purple signal to all lighted devices. Its a simple solution to an everyday problem.

Now, I must request your help. The contest is tiered, where at each stage a vote from the community affects whether a specific project will more forward. Please log on to http://mypic32.com/web/guest/contestantspr...profileID=13961 and vote for the project. Furthermore, all design materials are available free on the project page. Anyone may download, and build their own A.I. system. By voting for this project, I feel, you are helping the whole deaf community further a great free product.

Hello Jeremy, I am John

I personally think that this is a great idea for the hard hearing people. This will make things so much easier and comfortable for people like that. I also think that it would be a great idea to combined the light flashing with vibration, so that one can feel and see the signal at the same time. I will certainly log on and vote for this master piece. Good Luck, and good going!
