Abstract:
    Device will be attached to the zygomatic or cheek bone. It will capture "3D Audio" from the surroundings and will transfer it to the brain through the concept of bone conduction.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    It will make regular consumers more socially aware while using headphones as it won't block off the surroundings like regular earphones do. Also, by passing of the ear canal means that people suffering from ear damage will also be able to hear again as sound will be delivered directly to the brain.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   1- The general public that would use these earphones in place of their regularly used headphones. 2- People suffering from a damaged outer ear or ear canal due to which they have lost their sense of sound. 3- Military personnel during their exercise regimes.
How will the solution works
    Sound is produced all around us, but our regular recording devices are only able to capture a portion of it. Our device will capture "3D sound" from the full 360 degree range and then transfer it to our earphones that will be attached to the cheek bones. The earphones will convert sound to vibrations that will be carried to the brain directly thus bypassing the need of an ear canal altogether which will allow people who have lost their auditory senses to once again be able to hear.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently in the Pakistani market, there is no such device available that provides the services that our device provides. It is an entirely new concept as far as the Pakistani market is concerned.
