Ubi Duo

Has anyone ever used the Ubi Duo?  If so, I’d love to hear what you think of it.

It seems like a great way for a deaf person to communicate with a hearing person……..but expensive – around $2,000.  If you’ve never heard of it, watch the video with Noah Buchholtz.
My first thought was, “How would this be better than a laptop or iPad?”  But, I think it would be as it has a split screen, so you can see what has been typed to you and reply without having to turn the screen around and wait for someone to read it.  In the video, Noah talks about all the many different uses he found for it in college.  But I can imagine so many more – at a doctor’s office, in the hospital, at work, hanging out with friends at a bar, and really anywhere a deaf person needs to communicate when an interpreter is not available.  If you have used one or know more about it, please leave a comment here.
Thanks!
