Vibrating Haptic Suits Help Deaf People Feel Live Music

When Daniel Belquer was first asked to join a team to make a better live music experience for deaf and hard-of-hearing people, he was struck by how they had developed work around to enjoy concerts. He thought the team could make something to help hard-of-hearing people enjoy live music even more with the technology now available. Belquer, also a musician and theater artist, is now the Chief Vibrational Officer of Music: Not Impossible, an off-shoot of Not Impossible Labs, which uses new technology to address social issues like poverty and disability access.
