Prism / Wearable Tech


Prism collaborates with a smart-watch to help a deaf person communicating with a hearing person without any language barrier. Prism captures the sign language and translates the signs by using two micro-cameras. It listens and speaks to a person with the micro-phone and the speaker installed. The smart-watch receives information from Prism and displays the dialogue as texts on the smart-watch. Prism’s proactive and fashionable design encourage a deaf person to engage a conversation with a hearing person. The device is designed to become a person’s fashion style. The design is to create a beautiful jewelry for the user to wear it everyday.
