Silent Tap / hearing-impaired, vibrating media player

Silent Tap

Silent Tap makes it possible for the hearing-impaired to sway their body with music by converting sound waves into vibration. With Silent Tap, they can feel the rhythm of music, sharing the feelings of a song, embracing themselves into an amazing experience. Silent Tap is shoes and socks, too. The user can wear it as flats or as a pair of comfortable socks since Silent Tap is made of breathable cloth.
