"Communication as an indispensable method to convey intents primarily happens verbally. People getting used to this convenience are short of sufficient strategies to communicate when oral communication is hindered by interferences coming from both internal and external fields. Components of communication process are obstructed by negative factors from environmental, cultural and psychological limitations that prevent the sound-based communication method to run smoothly and become the primary choice. This thesis is aiming at exploring possibilities of providing new strategy through discovering potentials of human existing nonverbal communication methods in listed occasions. The problem will be overcome with the assistance from universal signs and wearable technology. Guidance of seeking effective solutions will be provided to industrial designers that are facing similar problems. It will also facilitate those who are dedicated in enhancing communication to come up with broader concepts interdisplinary fields."
