iDiversicons – Find and Emoji Just for You

Consumer Update

Shouldn’t the emoji that speaks for you, look like you? That’s exactly the idea behind iDiversicons, the world’s first diverse emoji.

In fact, they invented the five-skin tone standard now used by Apple and Google. They’ve made it their life mission to include as many people as possible, including all colors and races, so no one’s left behind.

If you have curly red hair, you’ll find an emoji just for you. Or if you have curly hair that you like to wear in two buns on the top of your head, then – you guessed it – you’ll find an emoji for you.

But iDiversicons doesn’t stop there…they also have emojis for various religions, people with disabilities, and the men and women in our armed forces. There’s even emoji that represent your favorite politicians.

And now, to make their emojis even more inclusive, iDiversicons has started a special crowdfunding drive so they can offer an even wider range for you to choose from. So the next time you send out a message, make sure it looks like it actually came from you.

iDiverisons is available for Apple and Android devices as well because one emoji does not fit all.

BHearing – New Hearing Amplifier with Bluetooth Functionality

Consumer Update

There are about 48 million people who suffer from some form of hearing loss in the United States. BHearing from Jabees is a new hearing amplifier that’s making it easier than ever for people to hear in any type of situation.

Bhearing is the Bluetooth personal sound to improve files with the APP that the user can fit, program and control the headphones on their own.

According to the hearing health foundation, about 48 million people are suffering from hearing loss in the United States and 360 million people are hearing impaired worldwide, but only 5 % of them are using hearing aids.

Jabees thinks there are two reasons, the first one is the price. The average price of a hearing aid is $4,700 us dollars which is too expensive for many people. The second is the stigma that most people don’t want to be noticed as hearing impaired, so BHearing is here to help.

Three major features of BHearing include:

  • The first one is the adjustable noise protection, the user can adjust the level of the noise based on the environment
  • The second feature is when there is a sudden high volume, the sound will be suppressed to prevent the damage to a user’s ears.
  • The third is a detachable battery which can be charged by the inputted charging case.
