About the solution

While still in high school, Quentin conceived the Deaf Tab, an electronic device that detects sound as soon as an alarm starts and sends a visual or a vibrant message, to help ensure deaf people are aware of it. The device enables deaf people to find a certain autonomy at home or at work.

Quentin, the leader of the project, conceived, with the help of his friends, Deaf tab, the device that detects every sound alarm in a house such as a fire alarm, the doorbell or the baby phone.

His creation allowed him to be a finalist on several competitions, such as the Google Science Fair, even though Quentin does not want to be an entrepreneur. He wants to commercialise his invention at low cost so that a maximum number of people can use it. The device could be built by anyone, since the different parts are easy to assemble. The device itself costs approximately 57,50 € and the transmitter costs about 8 €. Quentin is currently looking for an investor to support his plan.

Quentin Wavelet, born in 1998, is an engineering and computer sciences student at the University of Bordeaux. He started working on the Deaf Tab when he was concluding high school in Paris. When he heard that a friend’s father, who is deaf, stayed in a hotel during a fire because he didn’t hear the fire alarm, Quentin decided to create a device to help ensure deaf people’s safety.
