Wearable Device Lets The Hearing Impaired Feel Music
The Vibeat headphones can convert sound into vibrations for a novel musical experience
Have you ever wondered what music is like for those who are hearing impaired? Partially or fully deaf individuals experience a physical perception of music that is felt through vibrations, rather than sounds. Unfortunately the quality of vibrations varies which has a dramatic impact on their musical experiences. Thanks to a new wearable device called Vibeat, their experiences could be enhanced moving forward.
