UK-based product designer and radio DJ Dimitri Hadjichristou is using tactile sensations to help hearing-impaired children to “hear” in different ways.
He’s created synth modules (seemingly inspired by LEGOs) and constructed the Vi, which enables kids to see and feel the sound they are creating. Amazing! Check out details over at 3ders.
EB declared 2014 the “year LEGOs officially became gear”—more on that here.
