---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a visual, audio, and tactile MP3 player for individuals who are hearing impaired and/or deaf. It is a common misconception that individuals with hearing impairment and/or deafness cannot experience the joy of music. However, studies have shown that the sense of touch is heightened, allowing these individuals to perceive music in a totally different way. SOUNZZZ is a visual, audio, tactile MP3 player designed for the hearing impaired but universal enough for all to enjoy.
Sound is translated into a series of vibrations. One simply hugs the device to feel the music. In addition to vibration, the SOUNZZZ displays an equalized light show along with the sound. TITLE: Feel the Music. WEBSITE: Yanko Design. REF: http://www.yankodesign.com/2009/11/17/feel-the-music.
