Muhimu

Silver
2017

Muhimu is a service for integrating deaf and mute students into auditory-based college environments. Enabled by a set of smart rings and a connected app, Muhimu filters nearby sound and translates it into haptic patterns and visual feedback. Muhimu facilitates deaf students to be responsive to their surroundings with no dependency on an outside source, such as an interpreter, while understanding the content and context of information.
