Haptic suits give deaf concertgoers a way to experience music again

Music is one of the finest things one can experience in life, but sadly it’s something the deaf and hearing impaired are robbed of. But one of the things that’s often said about music is that you can feel it too, especially in a live setting. 

With that in mind, musician and artist Daniel Belquer of Music: Not Impossible (a spin off of Not Impossible Labs) set out to help the deaf rediscover a love of music, and after many trial and error tests, developed a haptic suit made up of 24 vibrating plates. It takes the form of a kind of backpack, with additional plates strapped to each wrist and ankle.
