If you have a watch and a smartphone that communicate, maybe get them to be aware of their relative positions to open up a new gesture interface? Eg. change volume by raising your hand, hold your hand to your ear to make a call (assuming speaker/ mike in the watch communicating with phone in your pocket) etc. Okay, so who wants to define the gestures for surfing porn ...

Why Are Digital Hearing Aids So Expensive?

I don't want to spen Why isn't there an app for this? (727 comments)

I may be being simplistic, but isn't most of the hardware required in phones and MP3 player these days? If you could have a bluetooth earpiece connected to a pocketsized device that does the processing for you most of the miniaturization issues are solved. It may be a step back from an all-in-one device, but most people have pockets full of gadgets these days anyway. So imagine a lapel mike, an iPod nano sized processor and a wireless earpiece - now it's a software problem. (Any programmers on Slashdot these days?)

Even if the software needed a professional set-up to calibrate for the individual surely this would drive the price down.

And think of the PR - all those people claiming MP3 players make you deaf - what if you made one that helped the deaf to hear?

Please, no jokes about the iEar or Google Cyborg.

New Hitchhiker's Guide Book "Not Very Funny"

That was Adams' real gift - it was his uniqueness being more unique that anyone else's. Anyone can be unique, but being more uniquely unique than anyone else needs a special talent.
If only everyone could be as unique as him. I think we should try to mimic this uniqueness, maybe teach it in large classrooms where everyone can learn by rote exactly what made it unique and reproduce it in a precisely quantified manner.

... and so on ...
