For anyone unfamiliar with hearing aids, know that they require a great deal of two things: money and batteries. Luckily, one humanitarian project aims to make the medical devices much cheaper and more eco-friendly. Solar Ear, a Brazil-based company, created a low-cost hearing aid that gets their juice from solar-powered batteries. Not only are the devices much more affordable than traditional hearing aids, they decreases reliance on fossil fuel-based power and seriously cut back on battery waste.
