About the event
Keith McElveen, Founder and President of Wave Sciences, The Future of Hearing is Loud and Clear. You have undoubtedly noticed that your hearing aid has trouble picking out voices in a crowded restaurant. Yet at the same time on television you can hear perfectly the quarterback calling his signals despite a crowd of 80,000 people in the stands. How can that be? It is because of a giant parabolic dish on the sidelines that focuses the sounds and transmits them. Keith McElveen has taken the parabolic dish concept and sewed tiny parabolic microphones in a super-powered tee shirt that let’s you hear in 3-D. Truly, the future of hearing is being developed right here in the Charleston area.
