Music: Not Impossible is a wearable vibro-tactile vest that enables deaf and hearing fans to experience concerts together by translating music into tactile vibrations. It consists of a vest, two wristlets, and two anklets with a total of 24 actuators linked to different instruments and sounds that distribute vibrations all over the body. When a drummer hits a bass drum, actuators in the anklets vibrate. The snare drum causes the wristlets to vibrate, and as vocals get louder, vibrations across the tops of the shoulders grow stronger. Wearers may adjust the intensity of the vibrations, which are visually represented via customizable color LED lights.
