Audio sensory enhanced seats

This performance provides audio sensory enhanced seats, which enables physical sensation from sound converted into vibration, so that the audience with hearing impairment and their families and caregivers can sit together to enjoy music.


Huggable Speaker “HugMe” (about 15 seats)

The device is a pillow-sized and weighed speaker with a body-sensible vibrating system installed. In addition to the sound of instruments, it sends users the same vibration that the performer physically feels when they play the instruments. Therefore, persons with a hearing impairment can feel the sound and melody with their bodies.
