Inspiration

We want to empower the community by increasing access to the experiences that life has to offer through the use of connecting technologies.

What it does

The ECHO bracelet has three features to help those who are hard of hearing including a metronome, morse code translator, and music interpreter.

How we built it

The ECHO bracelet was built using an Arduino Nano, transistor, and vibration motor.

Challenges we ran into

Getting the vibration motor to be controlled by the microcontroller proved to be difficult due to power constraints until we added a transistor.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of having a working product that is inexpensive and intuitive to use.

What we learned

The combination of software and hardware for embedded systems can prove to difficult yet rewarding to develop.

What's next for ECHO: Enhanced Communication Hearing Oscillator

We want to apply ML models to enable the use of sound and phrase alerts to help those hard of hearing know when an important audio event has occurred such as a bus stop announcement.
