Eric Rosenthal NYU ITP scientist in residence and Michelle Temple, alumni and adjunct professor have announced the launch of their kickstarter for the assistive hearing device “W ear” that they have been working on for the past year. W ear was made with the objective to provide a low-cost hearing aid alternative for individuals who suffer from hearing loss. W ear is an analog wearable which uses a low profile micro-miniature, patent pending, directional microphone technology. W ear was not designed to be a hearing aid replacement, however we hope to provide an assistive device for those who need a low-cost option to improve the quality of their hearing. W ear can also be used as a high quality directional microphone for general audio recording.
Please help them get the word out. They appreciate your support.
