Concept: Soundtouch Lets The Deaf Enjoy Music Through Vibration

If you’re deaf you might not be able to enjoy music, but a designer has imagined an innovative music system that would allow the deaf to experience various forms of music. It was developed as a concept for Bang & Olufsen, the audio experts, and is dubbed Soundtouch.

The device is easily wearable and is powered by an eco-friendly fuel cell technology.
