Stefan / Smart glasses


These glasses have been designed to help deaf people do better when in the house or even on the street by combining shazam smartphone technology and augmented reality. Shazam technology detects the surrounding sound type with sensors that detect the source and the augmented reality projects over the sound source a symbol that indicates what kind of sound it is, as an example when a phone sounds will appear above the call symbol. And these glasses can be more then just an indoor help its can help deaf people to be hired for a job which due to their deficiency are very discriminated because they are not considered capable to work.
