This is cool! Now that I am home for a while I would love to sign up and

Have you thought about collecting data? For example after a few weeks you
could change the tones and see if people walk at a different pace. Or keep
track of the tone patterns throughout the day and publish a type of 'sheet
music'. Busy foot traffic would have a different song then slow traffic.
