Designed for the hearing impaired, the Peri glasses attachment lets the wearer ‘see’ the sounds around them.
Still in the prototype phase, the Peri was inspired by video games, which will show a red glow to the side to indicate an enemy or other object of attention. The Peri attaches to the lower portion of the eyeglass frame, where its embedded microphones will detect loud sounds and illuminate to indicate the direction from which it came. The microphones’ sensitivity can be set by the user, and the team is currently working on improving the system’s audio algorithms to make them more precise in noisy areas.
Are there already aiming glasses to physically challenged? Combining EEG cap (Dec-16-16) and Peri glasses (Sep-18-17) different devices could be given on/off commands with focused glance. Training could be done with various gaming elements. Posted by Uolevi Kattun on September 21, 2017
And are there filters or AR lenses, which help people with limited color vision to identify all colors? Other glasses might fade out shades for those few people, who see the difference too well. Posted by Uolevi Kattun on September 28, 2017
