This is Ontenna!
It's a simple, little device that could have big implications.
That slot you see is a microphone.
And built inside is a simple vibrating motor.
And that clip on the back means you can wear it in your hair.
The result? A vibrating hair clip that helps the deaf feel the beat.
The intensity of the sound impacts the intensity of the vibration, meaning you could hear music, ringtones and so on.
A basic concept, but a great idea.
It's just a concept, but Fujitsu wants to put it into production.
Possibly as soon as this year.
The cost? Hopefully less than US$60.
