Neckband to aid the severely deaf by alerting them to sounds in their environment and the direction of the sound. Currently, people who are severely deaf do not gain spatial awareness from sounds in their environment. An array of three microphones identifies the direction of a sound, which is then alerted through haptic feedback from one of five locations.
Many rely on lipreading however, this is difficult when within a group since it is hard to track who is speaking. This device will help identify where a person is speaking from and alert the user.
Many prototypes were created, primarily using 3D printing to develop the haptic feedback method, ensuring the clarity of each perceived location.
The device can be comfortably worn throughout the day and will alert the user to hazards with varying urgency.
Vocal-AR Try On
An AR model was created to allow users to virtually try on the device for remote user feedback sessions.
