Speech to Text Glasses show the Deaf what people are saying in real time

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 31st, 2010

It can’t be easy being hearing impaired. Many can read lips, but that may not be the easiest way depending on the situation. Not everyone moves their lips the same way to make the same words, after all. But a new designer has just come up with a great way to make life easier. Wear glasses.

These speech-to-text glasses are a great concept. Someone has to make these a reality. They are designed by a Danish designer by the name of Mads Hindhede. The Babel Fisk glasses can allow the deaf to read what you’re saying, while you’re saying it.

SOUNZZZ lets you feel the music

SOUNZZZ lets you feel the musicMusic is interesting not just for the way it sounds, but for what it is. We hear music through our ears, but really music is just vibrations in the air. Those vibrations allow the deaf to “feel” rather than hear the music. SOUNZZZ is designed to allow the hearing impaired to enjoy music just like we do.

The sound gets translated into stronger vibrations that are felt by holding the weird egg-shaped device. It will also play a light show along with the vibrations and even has a headphone jack for people who can hear who may want to use it while playing music.

Vibering concept for the hearing impaired

Vibering concept for the hearing impaired
The Vibering is a concept device for the hearing impaired from designers Kwang-seok Jeong, Min-hee Kim and Hyun-joong Kim. The idea is to help the hearing impaired keep in touch with the world at large. The device has a sound detection and identification system within. The user would wear it as jewelry, no different then a pair of rings and a watch. The rings act as ears and hear the sound around the wearer.

They calculate distance and position, vibrating accordly, giving the user valuable information on their surroundings, through the watch part, which processes the sound and displays the results. It will even understand some phrases like “Excuse Me”, your name and car horns. This would be a miracle device for the hearing impaired should it come to pass.
