I am always in the lookout for ideas that change lives and change the world. This innovation changed people’s habits, perception and judgement towards the hearing-impaired driver, as it gave confidence and an equal chance for a normal job to the latter. This “audio-tactile conversion” technology from Hyundai, is definitely something the world can adapt-not just in driving but even in hundreds of other jobs.
