Noise-Driven Sound Generator
The sound generator shown here uses its built-in loudspeaker as a microphone when it is in the standby state. As soon as it detects a noise that exceeds an adjustable threshold level, it becomes active. This small, clever circuit can be used as an alarm generator that reacts to noises. You can also use it to help you locate an object in response to a loud sound, such as clapping your hands or whistling loudly.
