SoundShirt: connecting people through music
The SoundShirt brings media to life in a truly immersive way: a shirt that allows deaf and hearing audience members to experience music and AR enhanced by touch (haptic) sensations. During a live or virtual performance the wearer physically experiences each musical passage, different instruments corresponding to locations on the garment; for example the violin along the arms. It brings media to life to be felt physically, live, in-realtime, on the body in a tactile language unique to each piece of music being performed, opening new and diverse ways of creating immersion in music, gaming, and experiences for all audiences.
The SoundShirt truly allows multi-sensory experiences to be shared by everyone.
