Hello everyone :)
I would like to tell you about an idea I just had, so you can tell me what you think about the idea itself and its feasability.
The "problem" is the following : I live in a big city in France, and I am getting tired of the noise around, especially in the bedroom which has a window on the street. The kind of noise I am talking about is mainly traffic noise.
So I thought about noise cancellation, but I think it is too complex to be done with an arduino and a good result. I also imagine it is only efficient for very specific noises (plane take of ...).
So instead of noise cancellation, I thought I could do what I call noise Replacement : I mean by that replacing the nerving sounds by nice sounds (nature, wind, sea ...) to create a peaceful environment.
The sounds would be triggered by a certain level of outside noise, and their magnitude would be aligned on the magnitude of the noise outside.
- What do you think of the idea itself ? Maybe you know better concepts that could be applied ?
- What do you think of the feasibility ?
- What kind of device could I use to store and play sounds in interface with arduino ?
Sorry for the long text, thanks for reading :)
