Deaf Jam! From assistive needs to universal use.

This project broaches the issue of assitive communication and how it can be transferred to rather universal use.

In five short video clips (ca. 90 sec each) we show solutions for supporting both deaf and non-deaf communication. The concepts include a mobile alert recognition (1); a mobile app for receiving realtime information (2, 3); a rough approach broaching the issue of finger-spell-communication (4); and a hardware solution for freehand communication (5).

All five result from a participatory project between the Design Research Lab Berlin and the Deaf Institution Sinneswandel, as part of the research project “DESIGNABILITIES – Disability-inspired Interaction”.
