Enhancing the human experience #AR #AI #SmartGlasses #SmartHearingAid
Smart hearing aids and smart glasses to enhance the human experience.
Two interesting products that stuck out of CES 2019 had to be Focals smart glasses and the Livio AI smart hearing aid. This is the first time I’ve really considered that a new kind of sensory model might significantly advance the machine-human experience.
This could be used to not only enhance and protect hearing for folks who don’t need hearing aids, but, coupled with the smart glasses, the smart hearing aid could redefine whether we even need a smartphone…and possibly make that class of device irrelevant in some cases.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
