Oticon Delta Hearing Aid

Oticon said on Friday that its new Delta earpiece could potentially revolutionize hearing aids. Acknowledging the frequent complaints of bulky and ugly earpieces, the company has shaped the Delta to minimize its impact both inside and outside the ear. The triangle-shaped amplifier contains both dual microphones, for optimally capturing sound without interference, as well as the battery that powers the hearing aid. A thin, skin-colored wire is the only link between the amplifier and its earring-sized speaker. Oticon offers the Delta in up to 17 colors that can either match the wearer's hair or skin or contrast sharply as a fashion piece. The Delta is sold today through doctors and other health care agencies. [Via SlashGear]

    I dunno. Match that delta shaped microphone array to your skin tone and I think a person would look like either a Vulcan or an elf.
