Noyse is a wearable device for the deaf that augments an individuals sense of feeling, rather than fulfilling the role of a traditional hearing aid. It is designed for the specific subset of the Deaf community that feels conventional hearing aids and implants force spoken language on them. The challenge was providing the utility of hearing utilizing another form of sensory input: feeling. Providing the directionality, amplitude, and pitch of sound through haptic feedback, Noyse hopes to enable the Deaf to augment their world with sound.
