Helping deaf parents hear their children

Liow Wei Ting, a recent graduate and currently a researcher in the Division of Industrial Design at the NUS School of Design and Environment, talks about how an idea for her final year thesis project turned into Fil’O, a product to alert deaf parents to the fact that their children are crying. Wei Ting, the only Singaporean finalist for the James Dyson Award in 2012, is developing Fil’O at the NUS Design Incubation Centre and in partnership with the Singapore Association for the Deaf.
