Written Sound for the Hearing Impaired

Acoustic Poetry is an exploration in the design of  products for deaf culture that focus not only on simple functionality but also offer an emotional connection to the acoustic environment that would otherwise be limited. Through the device, the user broadcasts the sounds of the environment that has sparked their curiosity to an interpreter who then responds with a brief verse describing the atmospheric noises. The result is an enriched connection to both everyday experiences and special occasions.
