“Imagine a world without music” – this is the first line for the ad for the Sound Shirt.

For most of us who can hear, music is an integral part of life that adds flavor, emotion, and color to our everyday life. Deaf people, however, can only see instruments being played and feel the slight vibrations they emit. Obviously, this is nowhere near the full extent of a musical experience.

That’s why wearable tech company CuteCircuit, in collaboration with the Junge Symphoniker Hamburg Orchestra in Germany, decided to create a garment that can allow the deaf to feel music – the Sound Shirt. After six months of research and development, the shirt was put to the test with a few deaf participants and the whole orchestra.
