Watch: Two concepts that could revolutionise subtitled cinema!

Posted on April 30, 2013


I was a bit sceptical when I first saw these two videos, but as I watched them I realised that both of them are onto something – creating a way of displaying subtitles in a cinema that only deaf people can see.

If they work, it’d mean that hearing people don’t complain about being distracted, and deaf people get to go to any film they like!

Could these two inventions revolutionise cinema-going for deaf folk? Watch the two videos below and tell us what you think.

Here’s the crowdfunding page for the above idea: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/off-screen-cinema-subtitle-system/x/3079020
