16-year-old Mukund Venkatakrishnan was frustrated with how costly and time intensive it was for his grandfather to obtain a hearing aid. So he spent two years making one himself that will cost less.
Questions for discussion:
1. Is it possible that the internet can provide enough information to be innovative and improve existing technologies?
2. Would you trust a home-made hearing aid, or any other type of home-made technology, over a more expensive and branded item?
