Crave giveaway: Novo, for smart volume control on the go

Hear ye, hear ye! Win a little clip-on device that automatically adjusts the volume of your mobile device based on ambient noise.

Adaptive Sound Technologies

Congratulations to last week's winner, Terry M. of Roseburg, Oregon, for winning a pack of five PowerSnap Charger power outlets with built-in USB ports.

Ever have trouble getting the volume on your mobile device just right? This week's prize, an audio accessory from Adaptive Sound Technologies called Novo, automatically boosts or reduces your headphone volume in real time based on the ambient noise around you.

The little device clips onto your clothes and connects to any device with a standard 3.5mm audio jack. Since everyone hears the world differently, you can personalize the Novo's mic sensitivity to best suit your listening preferences.

Novo is currently making a crowdfunding run on Indiegogo, and is scheduled to ship to backers in December. But you have the chance to get one worth $49.99, now, for free. How? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
