I found a website, through RLMDEAF's blog, called Tuvie design of the future.
It contains a design concept for "elegant" hearing aids.
It features these interesting looking silver earrings and it comes with a ring which acts as the controller. Very interesting!
However, I have to wonder if this piece would work for all deaf and hard of hearing people? There are different types and degrees of hearing loss. Would this work for someone who is severely-profoundly deaf? How much would something like this cost?
I like to mix it up with jewelery. Sometimes I like to wear gold and sometimes diamonds (well fake ones). I don't think I would want to wear the same thing everyday. I suppose it could be an option when I go out to a party or some special event. But I am guessing this would be some expensive option.
I like the design and where they are going with this. But, I don't think it will appeal to everyone.
What do you think?
