    An exciting project that we’ve been working on will release in the next few weeks. Similar to our recent Arduino project, the app will alert the user if they are speaking too loudly. Stay tuned for the release!

  • Voice Loudness Monitor – Instructable

    A paper from 2019 found that speaking with a louder voice creates more aerosolised viral particles [Ristenpart 2019]. This simple Arduino project reminds people to not shout unnecessarily. It could be used in classrooms, meeting rooms or any other setting where people are talking. The equipment list, instructions and code are available here: https://www.instructables.com/Voice-Loudness-Monitor-Arduino/
