The people with hearing impairments can now follow a conversation easily with this new hearing aid. Wear is a gadget that can be worn around the neck as a necklace. It can listen to all sounds within range of 2 meters around you. For this, it captures them using a small microphone, clarifies them removing noise and amplifies them so that the conversation can be heard as intelligible words, once the headphones plugged in.
Wear has many new features that make it better than the conventional hearing aids. Wear is powered by a rechargeable battery. Battery can be charged in only an hour and once the battery is charged it lasts all day. Equipped with a directional microphone, the conversations can be recorded and replayed later by the user. Practical and easy to use, Wear had been put at Kickstarter for a fundraising campaign and it has been a great success. The product is expected to be sold at the end of the year for a price of around $ 165 or € 120.
We were impressed by this new useful gadget. We congratulate the creators and we hope Wear will make the lives of deaf people more pleasant. Do you think that one day technology will manage to overcome all the impairments caused by an old age?
