Listnr is a listening system by Ria Ehara that's designed to connect to the cloud and interact with your environment through sounds. While there have been several advancements to sound recognition technology, Listnr proves that we've come nowhere close to realizing its full potential.

With Listnr in the home, you're able to do things like control smart lightbulbs with a snap of your fingers and get notifications for when and why a baby is crying. Currently raising funds on Kickstarter, with more development it's promised that Listnr will eventually be able to gauge people's feelings just by hearing their voices and emit colored signals to serve as indicators for these feelings, representing the emotional tone of a room.
