Vibering Sensor for Deaf

In the world, there are the deaf community which live in the silent life and shared with the hearing people.. they are not just being deprived of music, a sweet whisper and a simple phone call. They are also lacking the ability to be fairly warned of impending danger from out of sight sources. Designers Kwang-seok Jeong, Min-hee Kim and Hyun-joong Kim really have a great idea to created this inspired design, so it would most certainly save deaf's lives.

Their concept:

Vibering is created to enable deaf people to sense noises that are emitted in the rear. It is almost impossible for the hearing-impaired to detect noises behind themselves and beyond their sight. For example, they fail to take notice of a vehicle's horn somewhere at the back or a friend's alarming cry; this often results in an exposure of unforeseen emergencies. Vibering consists of two rings and a wristwatch. The ring enables the bearer to feel its vibration when there are any specific noises at the rear. The noise-detective signal of the ring is set to identify precise information from the wristwatch window at the same time.

"Vibering” is an ingenious way to help the deaf, by fashionably housing a sound detection and identification system to be worn as a pair of rings and a wristwatch. The rings are to be worn on both hands and are the ears that not only listen for sounds emanating from behind, they also determine distance, position and vibrate according to source. The wristwatch aspect, identifies the sound wave and present this info to the wearer in an easy to read display. The watch is programmed to listen for certain key phrases from humans like “Excuse Me..”, your name being called and any number of car noises including the most important one, a car’s horn. This device concept could not just be a major life enhancer for the deaf" - YankoDesign Blog.

I think that it is very great gadget for deaf community.. I really like this stylish ring and wristwatch because it can help deaf people to sense noises around them. For example, the vibering sensor can make the Deafs to notice vehicle’s horn or someone’s call at the back which often results in an unforeseen emergencies...Vibering sensor not just an alarm unit for hearing-impaired, but also can be stylish fashion~ :D
