Experience John Lennon With The Bermuda Tapes
John Lennon once famously said “Reality leaves a lot to the imagination”, and its possible that this statement could well have been a source of the inspiration for the creation of the ‘Bermuda Tapes’.

Together they create a system that translates common signs into spoken language and opens up new opportunities for the deaf or hearing impaired.
