App Will Alert Users to Danger Via Audio Intelligence

Software firm One Llama plans to release an app that will listen for sounds in the environment that may signal danger, such as sirens and breaking glass, then interrupt whatever is playing on the mobile device with an amplified version of that sound. This may be especially valuable to people with hearing loss, or cognitive disabilities that might otherwise restrict their ability to travel independently.
