Technology: Captioning on Glass (CoG) (For Android, Syncs with Google Glass)
Invented by: Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology
When it was invented: September 2014
What it does: the hearing individual speaks into the phone with the opened COG app. The captioning is sent (for free) to the wearer’s google glass. The app uses a voice recognition algorithms that allow the speaker and the wearer that will “help define the context of the conversation” . COG allows family and friends to download the app and sync both their phone and the Google Glass, which opens communication lines even further. .
Google glasses come equip with a microphone, however, the current design doesn’t pick up on surrounding sounds compared to the wearer’s voice.
