Saving whisper is an exit sign with a built in directional speaker. Directional speakers are effective at focusing high intensity sound toward a specific area making them suitable for directing evacuations in low visibility conditions, and the sound of it won’t interfere with others. Current exit signs which rely on illumination during an emergency may not be adequate in heavy smoke or for the visually impaired. Saving Whisper can relay messages that can guide evacuees to safety, and notify them when they are approaching stairs or other obstacles. This design can be the difference between life and death when trapped in a smoke filled building
