The conceptual 'Commu' communication device is a solution for those with a hearing impairment to help them fine-tune their speaking and allow them to practice their capabilities.
The two-part system consists of a sensor that is placed on the throat to capture vocal chord vibrations and a smartphone dock for displaying sound waves for the user to see. The artificial intelligence (AI)-powered app will let the user know if they are pronouncing and enunciating correctly to help them feel more confident about their communication capabilities when socializing.
The conceptual 'Commu' communication device is the design work of Kyuseok Lee and Hyunjin Kim, and is a great digital solution for members of the hard of hearing community. The user-friendly design makes it suitable for those who were born with hearing impairments and those who experienced hearing loss later in life.
