Full Body Sound audio wearable aims to be the next disruptive technology

While other wearables on the market are limited to bass frequencies, Full Body Sound opens users up to the full spectrum of music in full stereo.

According to husband and wife team, Allison and Griffin Hale “Music is more than just a sound, it’s a feeling.” That’s why they’ve created a device that allows you to enrich your music experience and actually feel what you’re listening to. It’s called Full Body Sound and it’s an audio-tactile wearable device that utilizes electrostimulation to bring this enhanced music experience.

While other wearables on the market are limited to bass frequencies, Full Body Sound opens users up to the full spectrum of music in full stereo. It achieves this with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology, which is already commonly used for medical purposes, physical therapy and pain relief. So, instead of just a simple rumble, you can feel everything from vocal and string instruments to electric guitars.

In order to use Full Body Sound, you just have to connect your audio via Bluetooth, pick a song and place the device’s pair of electrodes on your skin. Then, a harmless electric current stimulates the muscles and nerves near the electrodes to the song. You can even share the experience with your friends just by holding hands.

Full Body Sound is great for anyone who wants to enhance their music experience, but what’s especially cool about it is that it’s also useful for the hearing impaired, who are typically limited to bass frequencies. Now, they too can enjoy the full range of sound and genres of music like jazz, R&B and classical.

“Full Body Sound truly comes from a place of passion for us,” says Allison. “It was initially created for us and our family. It wasn’t until we tried it with friends, took it on a raft trip down the Grand Canyon, and received overwhelmingly positive feedback that we realized this was something we needed to share”

Allison and Griffin see audio-tactile wearables like the new disruptive technology. Thanks to Griffin’s engineering and technical background and Allison’s problem-solving and entrepreneurial spirit, the two were able to bring it to life, but they are currently running an Indiegogo Campaign to take it to market. It has already been tested on over 400 people with an overwhelmingly positive response and musicians have already shown interest in incorporating this technology into their music creation and shows.

Full Body Sound can be pre-ordered right now on Indiegogo for $149.
