High Concept Statement:
Dangerous sound level alert.
Need or Demand:
Based on a 2011-2012 CDC study involving hearing tests and interviews with participants, at least 10 million adults (6 percent) in the U.S. under age 70—and perhaps as many as 40 million adults (24 percent)—have features of their hearing test that suggest hearing loss in one or both ears from exposure to loud noise.
Product / Service / Solution:
The app will alert the user of a loud sound as well as other users around the area. The app will then make a post to Yelp stating how the place of business/venue creates an unsafe environment that damages people’s hearing.
We will help preserve peoples hearing throughout their life.
There are no current competitors
As a social venture we will track how many times the app alerts a user of a loud sound, the decibels of the sound, and the duration of exposure.
