I know a deaf guy who loves to go to the clubs for the music. He likes the thundering bass and stands right in front of the speakers. Its quite funny because nobody stands next to him because its too loud. But he feels the beat for sure.

It's not a "so-called handicap". It IS a handicap, unlike others that claim they have a 'handicapped' but just somehow got their doctor to sign for a handicapped placard.

How about sticking to prototypes instead of concepts. I am interested in results rather than artist's renditions. Is it really necessary to release all these concepts?AKA futuristic drawings.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this could reach much further then music could it not? If a dual microphone setup was used, the collar could translate sounds, noises, and speech into vibrations which someone who is deaf could be taught to understand.

I am sure that you didnt mean so-called handicap. I think you mean so-called stereotype. At least I hope that is what you meant cause if not you are just a d**k.

wow, or they could just talk with their hands. No moving parts, or batteries to die. Also you wouldnt have to learn a whole new language.

I saw something similar on PopSci, this might even be from the same person. The one in PopSci was as an alternate to the bass speaker.

This is really awesome, I wonder how heavy metal will sound or "feel" on this? Its great to see that companies are not limiting the entertaining media to the average person, more companies should start paying attention to the blind, deaf, disabled etc.

this was actually made like 20 years ago it was called the bone phone if i remember correctly,it was U shaped and you would wear it around your neck and worked on vibrations ,but nobody else could hear the music ,like headphones..i remember it being pretty expensive,but I thought it was remarkable

Interesting, i wonder if this will actually get put into production, and if it deaf and hard of hearing people would find it usable and enjoyable. I know many hard of hearing people who use headphones because they can still sort of 'feel' certain parts of the music with them, im not sure if this work work as well or better for them.

I remember something similiar that I tried in '84 at a local Radio Shack, it was almost like the above buy longer with a bunch of speakers and a built in radio; was really quite cool. Anyone else remember it?
