as holidays are approaching, streets start getting crowded, because everybody is driving home for Christmas.

Reunited with one’s family, there is always some relative complaining about his hearing aids. Researchers at LZH want to find a remedy: They are currently developing ergonomically shaped earmolds that are produced on a 3D printer.

Perhaps the online-based learning platform OpenDigiMedia, being developed by IFW together with the Institute of Vocational Education and Adult Education (IFBE), helps take away the fear of the new trends.
