A new personal audio device called Woojer launched on Kickstarter this morning, promising users a new level of immersion by actually allowing them to “feel the sound,” especially after reporting on ViviTouch’s haptic-based headphone technologyearlier this year.
On a basic level, Woojer is a silent, wearable device that reproduces bass frequencies. The same ones you feel hitting your chest when attending a live concert. It’s a tactile and borderline-emotional experience for music lovers, and no headphones in existence — nope, not Beats or Pulse — have been able to replicate it (yet).
Put simply, the box translates low frequency sounds into silent tactile sensations.
