iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

Aling enables pedestrians to recognize dangerous situations even when their vision and hearing are impaired. In situations in which it is difficult to hear or see, the device recognizes such sound signals as sirens, doorbells, etc., and sends an alarm signal by vibration and light. It uses a sound sensor to recognize the emergency signal and notifies the user of the emergency by vibration and light. In addition, it can communicate details via the smartphone and is also able to monitor the current situation.

Stop wearing headphones is the message, but I guess we can't change society.
