The ‘Jinni’ Smart Assistant is for the Heard-of-Hearing Community

The conceptual ‘Jinni’ smart assistant is an intuitive piece of smart home equipment for the hard-of-hearing community that would provide them with a way to maintain connectivity without having to rely on auditory feedback or verbal cues.

The unit is equipped with a camera that is capable of interpreting sign language and will communicate with the user via a large built-in display. These features would make the unit ideal for those in the deaf community to help them perform tasks through a smart assistant in a way that suits their abilities.

The conceptual ‘Jinni’ smart assistant device is the design work of Zhong Zuozheng and is the winner of the 2021 Red Dot Design Concept Award.
