Designed by graduating Product Design student Adonis Toh, KUURO is an attempt at an alternative system to provide sound input to the hearing impaired by means of vibrations.

Fashioned like a stylish neckband, KUURO possesses the capability to “detect the location of a sound, and determine if the situation is regular or dangerous by means of built-in electret microphones.”

“They then relay the information to the wearer, through specially positioned vibration motors and convert auditory signals into tactile sensations,” Adonis continues.”The core neckband is sleek, and elegantly designed to give the hearing impaired a “sense of security”, also allowing them to “feel” sound. KUURO‘s design to translate sound into coloured lights relies on the wearer’s situation and surroundings.”
