Concept: Music For Deaf People

While many folks believe that deaf people can’t register sound, a German designer has come up with a conceptual device that will allow deaf people to “feel” music. Dubbed “Music for Deaf People“, it’s a collar that converts auditory input into vibrations that will trigger the same sound-processing brain regions as those with normal hearing. So the theory is that instead of hearing music, you’ll be able to listen through your skin, which sounds a little creepy at first. This device will fit snugly around your neck, and you could theoretically wear it while you’re jogging around the park, though we’re not sure how the act of jogging would affect the vibrations. Do you think such a device will become a reality?
