An invention that silences reggaeton music

BarcelonaArgentine Ronnie Bandini describes himself as a technology entrepreneur, programmer, writer and musician. He has programmed since he was a child and earned a degree in computer engineering from the National University of La Matanza in San Justo (Argentina). He invented machines like the toy Furbie that talked like writer Jorge Luis Borges, and a washing machine that calculated the price of a dollar blue (Dollars purchased on the Argentine black market) or a device that helps read the novel Hopscotch By Julio Cortázar. But it's his latest creation, Reggaeton-Be-Gone, that has given him fame and exposure on social media around the world.

According to Bandini, Reggaeton-Be-Gone came about as a result of a small symbiosis problem. A neighbor of the building next door, but sharing a wall with Bandini's, who played music, specifically reggaeton at very high volume levels from 9am. After getting tired of living in this situation every day, he started creating a device using a single board computer called Raspberry Pi, which aims to stimulate the teaching of computer science in schools. Once he had the device, he began studying by publishing all the stages of this creation step by step on the web And on their social networks.

The device works via Bluetooth and artificial intelligence. Using a voice recognition system that identifies the characteristic sound of reggaeton, analyzes the frequency and volume of the music, detects what it is, connects to Bluetooth and manages to interfere with the signal to make it impossible to hear comfortably on the next speaker and so on, the Argentine says he made the neighbor change the area where he placed the speaker Sound to listen to music and not be disturbed anymore.

“I don't have anything against reggaeton.”

On social networks, many users consider him a “hero” and a “genius” because he managed to interrupt reggaeton. There are those who ask him to market the product. However, in an interview with CNN Argentina, Bandini explained: “I don't have anything against reggaeton, it just arose from a certain situation.” “I am a musician and I realize that people love this festive music, but there are better times to listen to it,” he adds.

Although Reggaeton-Be-Gone sounds like a tempting solution for those who want to stop listening to their neighbors' Reggaeton music, there are still more peaceful and legal solutions, such as directly and politely asking your neighbor to turn down the music volume.
