---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a multi-mode headphone for adults with autism. Cumulus is a stylish headphone designed for autistic adults, where the headband goes round the neck and it has a galvanic skin sensor. This sensor helps determine the rise of temperature or heart rate in order to better understand the mental conditioning of the autistic adult, at that given moment. The way the headphones wrap around the user’s ears also provides a sense of comfort and security. The Cumulus has three modes - Sound Cancellation, Directional Microphone and Music - each of which is by a hand gesture. Covering the ears activates the Sound Cancellation mode to provide absolute silence. Putting a hand at the back of the ear will activate the Directional Microphone, which can isolate speech from background noise. Swiping the side panel of either side of the headphones will activate the Music mode. TITLE: Stylish Headphones for Autistic Adults. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
