A few very dangerous scenarios threaten the independence and the safety of the hearing impaired, but the Deaf Alarm Table aims to prevent such problems. Designed by Chinese Jianjian Gao, this wrist-worn alert receives loud sound signals and transmits a vibration that can be detected by the wearer.

It's unclear just how sensitive the Deaf Alarm Table is, but it can detect important warnings such as fire alarms and the kettle's whistle. Looking fairly intuitive to use, this innovative safety watch is sure to keep the deaf in the loop.
