MonaLisa disappeared / Noise detection for patients

MonaLisa disappeared
MonaLisa disappeared

Does it bother you that the volume of talking too loud to have a good rest, especially for patients in the hospital? In many countries, particular in Asia, people are full of hospitable and sympathetic. If relatives get hurt, people will go to the hospital showing the loving care. However, the over care (such as loudly speaking) is harmful to the patient’s health and rest. The “Mona Lisa” will disappear as the voice volume is rising to remind people they should stop talking without patients saying. This design is not only a pretty painting as usual, but also a medical device that can show the detail physical information of patients if need.
