The life of people who are hard of hearing can be difficult as it is, so
this mobile app was developed to make their lives easier. It helps by
understanding the sounds around their homes, the normal and the
abnormal ones, with text-based notifications to their mobile phones.
See Sound won this year’s top innovation award at the Cannes Lions
International Festival of Creativity.
Paco Conde: “In a world full of useless and pointless technologies and
gadgets, See Sound shows us what innovation should be. The first smart
home-hearing system that distinguishes multiple household sounds and
sends an alert message to the phone. A life changing device for deaf
people who will know if their baby is crying, when the microwave is ready,
if the dog is barking, and dozens of other sounds.”
