    Ideas please!

    My daughter is just finishing her second-year project at Uni. She is studying product design/engineering at Brighton.
    Her remit was to make something that would help either her or someone close to her.
    She has a hearing problem - especially when there is background noise and so she has designed and built a device that will flash when a sound is detected by it - and it will show from which direction the sound is coming from.
    She is struggling for a name. Some suggestions include SeeHear, HearHere, Light'n'Sound, Light'n'Larm as well as names that don't have any connection to the function such as Emerald or Cuttlefish

    Has anyone got any sensible suggestions for names?

    Thanks

    Also props to your daughter. That sounds like a very helpful device for those hard-of-hearing. Quick, get the patent office on the phone!

    I thought it was a good idea and could be useful for people sitting at their computer wearing headphones too!

    I have sent the ideas so far - I like AudioPoint and cSound very much
