The 12 year old inventor

Dylan Sandey (12), Cheltenham, was one of 13 chosen as the grand prize winner for ideas4ears 2021The global-wide contest challenged children aged between 6-12 years to invent something to improve the quality of life for people living with hearing loss. Competition entries came in the form of video presentations, detailed drawings, colourful paintings and even real-life prototypes, all aiming to improve the lives of people with hearing loss.

Dylan, who is deaf in both ears himself has a cochlear implant himself, came up with the idea of a smart watch which can connect to an hearing device via bluetooth and has buttons that can do really cool things such as set a vibrating alarm clock.
