The Challenge

In the modern office environment, employees often wear headphones at their desk.  They do this to enjoy their music and to block out distractions in the office.  Often desks are positioned to face away from doorways and busy hallways; also to avoid distractions.  These measures reduce unintended interruptions, but at a cost.  Employees are more isolated.  They often don’t realize when they have a visitor to their desk. Additionally, the office visitor doesn’t know if the employee is actively listening to their music. This leads to awkward situations, or worse, work related conversations that don’t happen because they didn’t want to go to the trouble of interrupting someone.

 
 

A Solution - iPauseMusic

The iPauseMusic application for the iPhone/iPod touch solves this issue. iPauseMusic uses the device camera to detect motion at the entrance to your office/cube and then pauses your music alerting you that you have a visitor.  Your visitor is shown a “PAUSED” message to let them know they can speak to you.
