Deaf News: Spark Socket uses lightbulbs to alert Deaf people to text messages

Posted on November 23, 2012

A new product created by a man with a Deaf father is set to alert Deaf people to text messages using light bulbs in the home.

The Spark Socket just needs a wi-fi connection and an iPhone, then the lights of your home can be controlled wherever you are. It’s all very impressive, putting the Mountcastle Silent Bell to shame.

Watch the subtitled video below to find out all about their product, and go to this link to find out how you can help fund it:

The Limping Chicken is supported by Deaf media company Remark!, provider of sign language services Deaf Umbrella, and the RAD Deaf Law Centre.

The Limping Chicken is the world's most popular Deaf blog, and is edited by Deaf journalist and filmmaker Charlie Swinbourne.
