Surround Navi / navigation system

Surround Navi
Surround Navi

Let's share the same music.
Technology development enables many digital products for the visually impaired.
However, the products specially made for the disable evoke the isolated feeling.
The goal of this design is for the disabled and the non-disabled to satisfy each other's role and share the same design.

Surround Navi let's the both share the same music and allows satisfaction on the emotional need and the navigation function.
As presented as the sound source is at the next direction, the left and right 6 channel 3 dimensional sounds inform the directions.
As pleasantly following the music, they reach the destination.
