Ardio / Smart spectacles hearing-aid


It is difficult for people with hearing impairment to locate the danger in an emergency. Especially in noisy environments, users often fail to focus on the sound they want to hear. Ardio is a smart air conduction and bone conduction spectacles hearing aid. Integrated with the AR technology, it can realize the sound source orientation and voice-print recognition, reminding users of the location and distance of the danger. Sound amplification function of designated people can be activated by tapping the volume control button in the middle. It gives an elegant and efficient way of correcting hearing loss while restoring clear vision.
