Tribal Solar-Powered Hearing Aids: This solar-powered device was designed by Andrew Carr, a mechanical engineer in Cambridge, who noticed most hearing aids donated to Africa don’t help because they treat a different type of hearing loss more prevalent in the West. The hearing aid Carr developed must be held close to the ear to work, but doesn’t have to be worn inside. Carr’s device has an internal solar-powered battery and can be attached to a necklace or hat so it’s next to the ear.
