The Development and Application of the Wearable Device for the Deaf Performers


This research aimed to develop a vibrating bracelet to meet the needs of deaf actors, exploring the influence of communication methods and empathy while working with them. The study identified the limitations and expertise of the actors, reviewing the action instruction method and performance guidance. Through performance training, the study aimed to understand the abilities and cultural peculiarities of the deaf. The vibrating bracelet was developed to collect data and strengthen the content of the drama according to the needs of the deaf actors, and interviews were conducted to understand the impact on their communication methods. The study aims to cultivate inclusive art performing arts creation and performance talents. During testing, the "excited" and "smooth" heart rates were used as the judgment results and compared with the facial expression recorded videos and line graphs. Emotional nodes of the deaf students during rehearsals were compiled as emotional judgments according to the results. It was initially defined that a heart rate of 83 bpm triggers a long vibration to indicate the performer's "excited" emotion. If the bracelet detects the performer's emotion as "gentle," the type of vibration will be defined before concluding the study. The comprehensive curatorial performances will promote the concept and method of "inclusive art" and practice and discuss the spirit of equal rights in art.
