They are not able to hear any car’s horn or sound coming from the blind side, so, this device is dedicated to tackle those issues. Designer : Sangjin Joo This glasses will notify user whenever there’s loud sound such as shouting, car’s horn, alarm, etc. it uses 2 different methods to notify user, first, it translates sound into visual animation by creating color and wave moment, in this way, they know how alarming the sound is. For example, Alarm Glasses use red to indicate how loud the sound is as well as the danger, yellow for lower volume of sound. The second method is to give a vibration on the rear-side part of these glasses to get user’s attention.
