Problem: Why can't the hearing impaired enjoy music? Music is a universal and for those who are hard of hearing are challenged when it comes to music enjoyment. With the new Apple Watch, there is an opportunity to provide the hearing impaired the gift of music.
Situation: Inspired by my cousin who is deaf and who loves music, the idea came to me for a mobile app which would allow the hearing impaired to enjoy music with technology.
Design: The Apple watch app ‘Visual Vibrations’ provides the user with the visual display of the music as well as a vibration of the beat on their Apple Watch and vibrating earbuds allowing the hearing impaired to feel the vibrations of each beat.
