Talk to the hand, cause the face – it ain’t listenin’. Now that is a pretty bad ass way of trying to look and sound cool in one’s juvenile years, although a slight variation of the above would see the replacement of the word ‘hand’ with ‘nose’. Why so, you ask? Well, NOSE is an invention by a 16-year old which is able to translate outgoing breathes into Morse code – pretty nifty if you were to use it to let disabled people communicate with the rest of the world.

Arsh Shah Dilbaghi is the brain behind the NOSE, and this innovative project even made entry in Google’s 2014 Science Fair. How does it work? It will rely on a tube that measures a couple of lengths of breaths – which would be dots and dashes in Morse code. These will then be sent over to a synthesizer, before one of the incorporated nine “voices” will speak out the message aloud.

In a different mode, the user can ‘speak’ in commands or phrases. Right now, Dilbaghi claims that the NOSE device can be utilized by those who are living with Parkinson’s, ALS and other conditions, helping them to communicate in an easier manner. This is definitely one of the cooler inventions to surface recently, kudos to Dilbaghi – keep that thinking cap on!
