Imagine! Surrounding Yourself with Smart People - We Do with CU Boulder

A group of University of Colorado Engineering students in a 2014 Fall Semester class taught by Associate Professor Melinda Piket-May spent the semester working on projects to design simple adaptive technologies that aid increased independence for some of the individuals Imagine! serves. I invite you to check out some of the videos of the students demonstrating their projects. The videos are short and well worth your time – this is some amazing stuff.

Resonating Head Band

This device can act as a cost effective hearing aid (even works underwater!) or just as a fun way to listen to music.

Ultimate Music Experience 

This project allows an individual served by Imagine! who has a hearing disability to “hear” music through vibrations in water.

Smart Shower

Created to allow an individual served by Imagine! to shower independently through verbal prompts on an mp3.
