Incus unveiled special edition model “Rouge” at Pitch@Palace Global 4.0 Finals in London
2019-12-12
The Finals of Pitch@Palace Global 4.0 took place in London on 11 December and featured 18 national winners from nine countries. Incus’ co-founders, Calvin Zhang and Professor Richard So had exactly three minutes to pitch. They took the opportunity to reveal Rouge, which is a special edition model that is simultaneously a piece of jewelry and a personal sound amplification product (PSAP). They demonstrated how the advanced audio technologies it features can benefit to the hard-of-hearing by providing a more comfortable listening experience compared to traditional hearing aids and PSAPs, especially in noisy environments.


Through pioneering designs and technology innovation, Incus strives to encourage more widespread adoption of hearing aids and personal sound amplification products & to battle the stigma surround hearing-impairment.
 

Rouge is an example of this, as it is a fully functional PSAP featuring Incus Intelligent Noise Reduction and Tailored Sound technologies with the electronic components hidden within the necklace. One sample of Rouge was gifted to Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II. Rouge is available in limited quantities only.

We’re excited to reveal our new logo:  



The red element is a reference to the Chinese character “人” [Rén], which means “people”. It serves as a reminder of our mission to use sound and technology to keep people connected, and that what motivates us to keep going is our interactions with  the people experiencing our technologies.
Besides the new logo, we’ll gradually roll out some other changes to our visual identity over the next couple of months.
