Gabe and Peter have two hearing impaired friends who struggle even
with hearing aids due to too much ambient sound. Gabe and Peter
have designed a new directional hearing aid with a two-directional
array of 8 to 18 microphones spaced appropriately to amplify the
sounds of all voice frequencies coming from directly in front of
the wearer. The sound signals are then digitally processed in a
custom chip to diminish the sounds from other directions. The amplified
output is then connected to a conventional hearing aid transducer.
This new technology is inexpensive and can be built into personal
accessories such as hats and briefcases.
