This smart lamp can be the perfect argument for when you ask for less noise at home

The noise is becoming an enemy to beat. The headphones they cancel it, new radars They will penalize the vehicles that cause it in excess, and perhaps you are one of those people who does not last too long in a room where there is music and / or people talking at the top of their lungs. Markus Kraetzig and Sophie Kupke from the Fraunhofer Institute, propose something that can help you keep noise at bay: a smart LED lamp.

“The lamp is red, turn down the volume”

Noise Lamp

The prototype of this light is very simple: the lamp illuminates with a green light if the decibel levels are adequate, but changes to orange if the volume begins to rise and shows a garish red if the noise is too loud. The last measure is a loud beep (which can be 70 to 100 decibels) if the noises do not subside despite the warning in the form of red. Until there is silence, it does not stop.

The noise is detected by microphones built into the lamp that constantly measure the decibels of the environment, and give their warnings based on the noise levels considered healthy. And for when noise measurement is not necessary, there is also a mode to display only a fixed color.

The applications of this simple but clever lamp can be in many places, starting with your own home if you are one of those people who does not stop asking the rest of the family to speak more quietly. They can also be placed in offices, taking into account that noise lowers productivity. Bars, libraries … A simple color can help regulate excessive noise in many places.

The lamp is portable and its managers claim that it has an autonomy of fourteen hours. It can be charged via a USB-C port like many other electronic devices.
