Nominated for the "Prize for Complexity and Holistic Approach" // AHO Awards fall 2015.
Fifth-semester school project: Brand, service and functioning prototype of a machine that helps people sleep and relax in a continuously growing city's noise. The device is fixed onto the window, using the resonating properties of the glass to vibrate it in your desired frequencies. Natural sounds, like rain, that you effortlessly adjust the intensity of, will help mask the outside noises like traffic and drunk people. With the accompanying application, you can calibrate and choose sounds from a theoretically infinite sound library.
How it works: The same way as the first sip of red wine tastes more than the last, and your nose adjusts to bad smell. Your ears will by your genetics fade back upfront frequencies to be able to pick up others. If the frequencies that is prevalent is the same as the noise you want to get rid of, then they wil actually be dampened. It doesnt hurt to do it with the sweet soothing sound of rain on a tin roof.
