One of the more interesting products on show at CES Unveiled this afternoon was Viable’s video phone aimed at the deaf and hard of hearing amongst us.

The newly-established company’s put a lot of time and money into developing the phone, which is completely portable and wireless. With a 10.2″ touch screen, the unit has a USB port, audio and video inputs and outputs and the usual visual and audio alerts you’d expect for high quality two-way video conferences. At 30fps, it’s not too shabby.

What’s fascinating is the phone was developed by deaf people, for deaf people. Even the man on the stand telling me about it was deaf himself, and using sign language, communicated via a translator.
