3D Tune-In: 3D Games for Tuning and Learning About Hearing aids

By Richard Eastgate, PhD; Lorenzo Picinali; Harshada Patel, PhD; & Mirabelle D’Cruz

Hearing aid technology has dramatically advanced in the last 25 years since the commercialization of the first digital hearing aid. The majority of individuals with digital hearing aids, however, use these devices as if they are a standard analogue hearing aid, (i.e. only for their amplification and equalisation features). New algorithms are under-used or not exploited to their full potential. This could be because of inefficient training.

3DTI will adopt a participatory-design process involving relevant stakeholders (human factors experts, technology developers, hearing communities, end-users) to create a toolkit incorporating binaural audio and 3D visual rendering (Figure 2), and a series of game applications that can work on different target platforms (Windows, Mac, Android, iOs, Xbox, Play Station, etc.) to enable end users to explore, review, and customize hearing aid devices in different simulated everyday contexts.
