RGB Sound Compass / Color Translator

RGB Sound Compass
RGB Sound Compass

The objective of RGB Sound Compass is to bring different environments' auditory experiences, such as city, forest or sea, to visually impaired patients who cannot enjoy traveling and for children who are always curious about the outer world.

The RGB Sound Compass has color sensor and plays the nuanced sound of any location of the map that user wants to experience by translating various colors from the map. For instance, if the RGB Compass is located on the blue area of the map, it plays the sound of waves and sea gulls. When the device is on the orange area (color for high way), it plays the sound of busy traffic.
