Drumhead, the thinnest hearing aid can enable humans to hear like cats


Researchers at Case Western Reserve University in the United States are developing a device that can significantly improve the hearing abilities of humans.

The device is called drumhead. It is a thin device capable of receiving and transmitting signals across a radio frequency.

The frequency range is much greater than what humans can hear naturally.

The device could change the future of communications and sensory devices as it is super thin and very effective.

Future devices based on this technology will enable humans to hear sounds outside their normal frequency range.

Other animals such as the house cat or beluga whale display the properties of a wider audio frequency detection range.

They are able to hear sounds that hearing people cannot due to physical limitations.

However, researchers are hoping that drumhead will change that in the near future.
