Communication Device For Deaf People "Communicaid"By
The device features two integrated high quality MEMS microphones that are designed to capture specific sounds like a fire alarm, or someone calling out from a distance, or the doorbell and transfer them into a visual pattern onto the display as blinking lights and pictograms. The Communicaid Visual Sound Station is a small portable device intended mainly for indoor use, allowing the hearing impaired to recognize sounds. The second concept from the series is a pair of glasses that can capture sounds and bring them to the wearer’s attention via blinking LEDs in a hair band style device. The device is intended for use during outdoor activates like jogging, commuting, shopping, etc. Intended for outdoor use, where a bulky sound station cannot be carried around, the Communicaid Glasses allow deaf people to become more aware of warning sounds and traffic on the street.
The third device in the series is a mobile communicator which converts conversation into text for the hearing impaired and also allows them to respond via a text on a screen or by choosing to convert the typed text into audio for the hearing person. The device features a curved slide-out display that can be read by the other person without straining his or her posture.
