Fair enough you say, but it's not like you're going to walk around with an SPL Meter is it.

That's where this project comes in.

Imagine a little box (like a smoke alarm for your hearing) on the roof of every room, monitoring the noise levels for you.

The kids crank the music to loud, your phone buzzes to let you know at that level permanent hearing loss will happen in 2 hours. Or you decide to bake your heart out and run every appliance in your kitchen, blissfully unaware of how much noise you're really making. A handy ding on your phone let's you know to turn the blender off.
