While in class, there were two sensors ideas that we came up with. One was a sound sensor, which we said could be used to track certain wildlife in jungles or forests. Some animals are tough to track or find, especially at night. The right sound sensor that could sophisticatedly track an animals sound could provide invaluable to the science and wildlife community.
Another use of the sensor could be for military purposes, to track enemy activity and noise. Thought, I have a feeling the type of technology is already in use.
The particular sensor on on Spark fun was more expensive than the rest, but the sound one would be extremely expensive based on its major capabilities.
