The Deaf Amulet / Safety alarm

The Deaf Amulet
The Deaf Amulet

When the deaf are walking outdoors, they cannot hear various danger warning sounds (such as horns honking and bicycle bells). So there are many potential dangers around them. We design the amulet with the function of danger warning. When the sounds with danger information come, the amulet will vibrate and glow to warn the deaf, and the corresponding danger icons will be displayed on the amulet. The design enables deaf people to notice danger in time and stay away from danger. It improves the safety of deaf people when walking outdoors.
