Empty Nest Filler
Ambient sounds for parents who find home too quiet without children
When children grow up and move out, sometimes the home may seem too quiet for the parents who remain.
Empty Nest Filler provides the sound of children as if they were still around. It can be used temporarily to help ease the transition, or for long term comfort. It may also be used by people who never
had children, but like the sound of them.
Some possible settings: rowdiness in the house, happy murmurings, faint outside playing, cereal slurpings, board game night, video game playing, teeth brushing, quieter reading to selves, carefree boasting,
It could be an app with controls to select the sound type, or a streaming service with different channels.
There are partially baked equivalents- sound effect and ambience libraries of kids playing, but they appear to be targeted toward commercial production use rather than consumer friendly products.
Idea could also be applied to self-driving cars

||One delusion special please. How long does it take to reach full insanity?
||If there is a dial to go back to the screaming tantrums and absurd demands, it will probably take less, i.e. 30 minutes or so.

||Tbis is why they make those odd thing known as grandchildren I guess? All the fun of children but with convenient expiration times.
