Vibrating shirt reacts on music

64 vibrators are integrated in this shirt. All these tiny vibrators can be individually controlled. A microchip with wireless connection is connected to a system that translates music in tactile information. High tones will be felt high on the body, with low tones the lowest vibrators come in action. That’s how you can feel Beethoven move onto your body or Tiësto beating all over you arms and back.
This project is commissioned by the Utrecht School of Art; music, interaction & game department, in and made in collaboration with Tim Walther. Pictures by Maarten van der Meer
