Epson shows off Moverio as hearing aid

Epson provides a demonstration of how its Moverio BT-100 Android-powered interactive display, coupled with some other components and some slight modifications, can be used as a communication tool for hearing impaired individuals by providing live subtitling.
Waffles and hotdogs! We've seem some of the subtitling applications out there, but they're typically geared toward entertainment and synced to a track. We wanted to look at the other 12 hours/day that folks aren't watching a movie or sleeping, etc. We hooked up a Moverio to some pretty common consumer electronics, and we came up with something that seems to work pretty well as a live subtitling device for everyday activities and conversation. Now we just need to get someone to tweak the UI, shrink it, and converge it!
