Find your way back home safely, thanks to your cellphone

Walk Back Home

If you find yourself in a city that you don’t know, you may happen to take a wrong turn and, along with losing your way, you might end up on the wrong side of town, where you could have unpleasant encounters and your safety might be at risk. If the city in question is San Francisco or Washington, though, a GPS system comes to the rescue, giving us directions to reach our destination without going through dangerous neighborhoods.

This system, called Stumble Safely, has been developed by a software house based in Washington, a city where crime rate is always on the rise, and is based on a range of data including addresses of bars and nightlife venues, public transport locations, and crime statistics based on the crime location.

In short, by gathering in real time the data coming from the city police database, and by matching the data against the nightlife database, the system is able to give you advice on whether or not you should go to a certain bar tonight, or drive on a certain road on your way back home.

This risk location system allows its users to display in real time, on their smartphone or PC, any dangerous situations nearby; it also informs them about open venues and provides useful info such as taxi companies numbers, open pharmacies, police stations and so on.

For the moment this system is being tested in San Francisco and Washington DC, but should the test be successful, it would surely be a useful tool to enjoy an evening out with friends or come back home (or rather, stumble) safely after a day at work or a night shift.

Electronic voice changers

Voice Changer

Living in the age of telecommunications and of information accessible to anyone anywhere, means that often we may find ourselves facing unpleasant situations, caused for example by the fact that our phone number may end up in the wrong hands due to the extreme accessibility of data for those in the know.

To protect us from any possible intrusion of our private life that takes place by phone, the most common solution is changing your phone number or having it removed from public directories. This solution though, aside from being inconvenient if you are using your phone for work and have to inform all your contacts about your new number, still has a degree of risk, as a smart detective could easily trace your number.

Instead of changing your number, you can think about changing your voice! All you need is a small electronic device, connected to your landline or mobile phone, and you will be able to pretend that you are someone else.

Thanks to an electronic voice changer, in fact, it is possible to select preset options, to make your voice sound like a man, a woman, an older person or a kid, as you like.

All this happens in a completely natural way and without metallic sounds, as the voice changer works on the different frequency ranges of the human voice, altering the pitches thanks to an algorithm which changes the voice without peaks that may sound artificial. Furthermore, it is also possible to add sound effects like a barking dog, a crying infant or a doorbell ringing, giving you an excuse to close an unwanted call.

To save you from creditors, sales people, ex boyfriends who just don’t get it, instead of changing your address or your phone number, just change your voice!
