A shirt that can help the deaf feel music
September 28, 2017
London-based tech-fashion company CuteCircuit has successfully tested a shirt that can help deaf people feel the music they cannot hear.
The Sound Shirt is connected to a computer system that picks up the audio from microphones placed at various points around an orchestra's stage. It is filled with little motors that vibrate in relation to the intensity of the music being played.
The deeper notes set off the motors in the lower parts of torso, while the lighter set them off around the neck area.
Watch this demo to see how the Sound Shirt works.
