Profile Info

The Wireless Whistle is a device to help hearing impaired athletes to play sports by using other sensors instead of sound. When the whistle is blown it expands a foil diaphragm inside it, which completes a circuit and sends a signal to a vibrating wristband on a hearing impaired athlete playing. This way, they will never be disadvantaged while playing a sport for not hearing the whistle.

The Wireless Whistle won 1st place in Junior Best Concept (Sponsored by Shift), Best Overall Female (Sponsored by ASB) and 3rd place in Junior Engineering (Sponsored by MIT), fantastic work Kate!
