Sense- Sound Locator / Disability aid

Sense- Sound Locator

Sense serves to assist the hard of hearing by combating their inability to locate the source of sounds. Our solution to this problem comes in a form of a necklace that will communicate the direction of the sound by allowing the user to feel it in the corresponding side of his neck via vibrations.The device will have several different components like multiple directional microphones and vibration motors placed in different positions on the device to distinguish the direction of the sound and to provide feedback to the user.
