We imagin smiling faces of people who are not familiar with IT

I am the oldest member or freecle Inc. Currently 60 years old, yet fully active as an engineer.
We try to make screen and item descriptions simple for customers who are not familiar with IT.

Also based on my experience of developing earphones and smartphone apps at SONY Group, I constantly seek for quality improvement.


Q1. How did you get involved in the development of "αble"?

I participated in the program because I wanted to help my parents, who are having difficulty communicating due to hearing loss.

I've suggested hearing aids to my parents many times, but each time I've been told that they are expensive, ineffective (probably) ), so when I found out about "αble", I was like, "This is it! I was excited. I felt that I wanted it first and foremost.
I joined the team in November 2019 because I had been developing for 35 years at a major manufacturer such as SONY Group, and I also thought I could technically support a team that was an average of 30 years old at the time, so I joined the team in November 2019.

Q2. What are your thoughts on this project?

While my friends and family members of my age are "interested in "αble"", they are also "not very good at IT".
If a product is not easy to understand in terms of function and operation, they will not be interested in it, no matter how good it is.
That's why we insist on developing application screens that allow you to get to the information you want to know without having to search for it.

Q3. What are your goals for the future?

Our goal is to develop products that can be enjoyed without thinking, and we would like to make it possible to operate "αble" with gestures alone.
I'll do my best not to be outdone by young people yet!

"able" creator's motto: "We are together with our customers"

“αble series” is the outcome of work we put together with our customers.

We think, listen and develop together with our customers from the early design phase.
