Entry Description

My sister was traumatised and suffered from hearing loss since the year 2021. She lost her right hearing ability which obstructs her from identifying the source of the sound correctly.

448M people in the world have issues with hearing ability. Sound localisation and engagement for Deaf people are the major issues in their daily life. They mentioned these issues limit their activities and sound experiences.

Beyond Hearing is an augmented reality interface, localising sound with a multi-sense feedback system to improve their safety, communication and daily sound engagement.
