Quiet Touch / Disabled MP3

Quiet Touch
Quiet Touch

This is a special MP3 for the deaf. As the deaf can not hear the traditional sense of vocal and rhythmic music, I replace the traditional music with the silent audio. Using sound waves and vibration headset stimulate the brain directly, then, users can feel emotion without hear the song with own ears. The design focuses of the deaf. Sound wave can be sent into the internal ear by vibration. After passing several layers, sound wave arrives at the cortex where it can be interpreted.It makes the deaf also have catalyst in their life.
