Students create revolutionary device that amplifies sight and hearing.

Royal College of Art students have built Eidos, a range of sensory augmentation equipment that can enhance sight and sound through two different headsets in the same way consumers would adjust their settings on TV or radio.

The sight headset, in the shape of a pair of glasses slows down movement in real-time by transferring images to a computer where they’re processed and then sent back, allowing the user to take note of hidden traces and patterns. This method is comparable to long exposure photography, which uses particular techniques to capture stationary and moving objects in one frame.
