One in Twenty people in the US are hard of hearing. Close to 1 million people in the US are outright deaf. In the meantime, we want to bury ourselves in noise cancelling headphones so we can be in our little world. So when things like the doorbell rings, a loved one is shouting at you, or danger is around, you might miss it. Nugunga wants to help with this, with the Nuguna Neckband.

What is the Nuguna Neckband
The Nuguna Neckband is a device that will vibrate when it hears a sound. This is a binaural neckband, so if the sound comes from the right side, it will vibrate from that area.
The band looks like other neckband devices, but is only serving one function: to alert you of a sound.
The neckband can be controlled via the buttons on the neckband, or through the app (which is only available for Android at the time of this article). You can change the size of vibration, length, and amount of vibrations (1 – 5 buzzes).
The app also helps dial in sensitivity, so it won’t go off for simple noises.
