Aria is a bracelet that tightens with sound designed for the hearing impaired who are dependent on assistive listening devices (ALDs) in their daily lives, to alert them of danger. All stages of development were accomplished by May Wilson while studying for her BA degree at Loughborough University.

The bracelet squeezes the wrist with sounds such as when the doorbell rings, when the smoke alarm is activated, or an incoming call is received. This bracelet, made of pseudo fish gills is in place of an ALD like a handheld or belt clip product, alerting the individual to the event by vibration. This product is a new approach to notification, tactile communication.

Technical Specifications: 
How it works: If the smoke alarm is activated, for instance, a radio frequency signal is sent to the product, awakening its internal pneumatic system. The pneumatic system is comprised of a tubing network that allows air to pass sequentially through the product. Air pressure moves external parts. The importance of the alert dictates the strength and repetition of the pressure on the inside of the wrist.
