KUURO is a wearable product system, with the ideal to bridge communication between the hearing-impaired and the hearing world. 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 surrounding he/she is in. The electret microphones fixed within will detect the location of a sound, and determine if the situation is “regular” or “dangerous”. They then relay the information to the wearer, through specially positioned vibration motors.
