HEADS UP (Headphone Emergency Alert Defense System)
After interviewing several Los Angeles Police Department officials about the number of injuries and deaths due to people wearing headsets to listen to music or other media, Harris developed his concept for an emergency alert system. The system overrides the media coming through the headset with an emergency alert message to gain their attention to any loud noises or sirens in their immediate vicinity. This could reduce death or injury to numerous joggers, walkers or bikers by alerting them to possible danger that they would otherwise have been unaware of.
