Semi Finalist 02: Smart Hearing Aid
Field: Health and ageing
Summary of the idea:
The idea behind 'Smart hearing aid' is to help people with hearing problems interact better. The best part of it is that they can have a full control over it. It's like having a remote for television. You can choose the distance you wish to hear on, the type of sounds and noises coming from the environment, you want to hear, as well as who you want to hear talking. It's all controlled with usual nowadays smartphones.
