Years ago, they thought it was going to catch on.
Operating systems had "action sounds" for when you opened
a folder or clicked on something. There are some regular
sounds that are regularly incorporated into systems but
usually are part of prompts or warnings. So it didn't really
on with computers, but why not clothes!? Our
society is increasingly trying to grab attention or become
part of the background! Having this technology built into
our clothes would be another way to express yourself.
Electronic sensors would be sewn into your clothes and
would send their signals to your phone, or a dedicated
speaker. It would detect all your movements in their
various speeds. Fully programmable, and with an entire
market dedicated to this, whenever you moved, it would
trigger a sound. If you ran, a siren sound would play, if
you stopped suddenly, screeching tires! If you fall down,
something comedic akin to cartoon sound effects.
Celebrities could ensorse their own actions, for a premium
of course: when you wave your hand good bye, a voice is
heard of our governator, "I'll be back". If everybody had
this system activated, it would be easier for blind people
to flow with crowd on sidewalks. Obviously, for deaf
people, it wouldn't be so interesting.

as possible, most of it about excreta.

||I get the screeching tire sound...but, why would
sirens sound when someone runs? Would the siren
sound be followed by gunshot sounds, perchance?
||Man, this is going to be a hoot for those blind
people. And, don't underestimate the interest from
the deaf. Once they see the blind folks diving for
cover (which they can't see), I'd bet that the deaf
will get a lot more interested.
