Subtitle Glasses Make It Easier For The Hearing Impaired To Go To The Movies
New technology could make going to the movies a more convenient and enjoyable experience for the hearing impaired.
As much of a visually-centric medium as film can be, it can be practically impossible to properly enjoy a film in its entirety if you are hearing impaired. Sony’s UK Lab hopes to change that with their innovative subtitle glasses. The glasses pick up a signal transmitted by the theater to stream the appropriate subtitles for the movie being viewed. The subtitles appear as green text on the edge of the glasses.
