'Peri' is an eyeglasses accessory that translates audio cues into visual ones, helping those with audio impairments navigate the world more seamlessly.

The design, which was created by students at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, is a simple accessory that can be clipped onto any standard pair of eyeglasses. The device, which was inspired by "shoot-em-up" video games, will display a subtle flashing light at the corner of the frame should it detect noise. This means that an individual will be alerted if a friend is attempting to get their attention as they walk down the street.

The clip-on element of this device ensures for an unobtrusive aid, that helps keep costs low for the user.
