Though there is some debate over whether it’s for the better, there’s no question that technology is changing the world. In this video, we get to see the meeting of two technologies: the Internet and the cochlear implant. It shows technology not only making a two-year-old’s world a little better, but also the worlds of everyone watching.
This isn’t the first time the Internet has shown us the amazing moment of a cochlear implant allowing someone to hear for the first time, and hopefully, it won’t be the last. Oddly enough, it’s the only one we’ve seen with closed captions. Still, the phenomenon of people sharing moments like this is a great argument for the positive power of technology. As devices like the cochlear implant improve the lives of their recipients, allowing the world to be a part of it via the Internet creates positive conversations and raises awareness about developments in health.
