Welcome to the website of 3D Tune-In

3D-games for TUNing and lEarnINg about hearing aids

3D Tune-In introduces a novel approach using 3D sound, visuals and gamification techniques to support people using hearing aids and learn about their different functionalities, and the impact these can have on everyday life.

The project brings together relevant stakeholders from traditional gaming industries, academic institutes, a large European hearing aid manufacturer and hearing communities to produce digital games in the field of hearing aid technologies and hearing loss in children and older adults, addressing social inclusion, generating new markets and creating job opportunities.
