Ontenna interfaces with the user to allow them to physically experience sound

Ontenna is an all new kind of user interface that you clip in your hair or on your earlobe, collar, sleeve, etc., to experience the characteristics of sound through vibration and light.
This interface was developed in collaboration with hearing-impaired people to ensure a future that normal-hearing and hearing-impaired people can enjoy together.

How Ontenna Works

Ontenna converts 60 to 90 dB sounds into 256 levels of vibration and light to convey the characteristics of sound.
It converts the rumbling patterns of sound sources in real time to aid in perception of rhythms, patterns and volume levels.
A controller can be used to control multiple Ontenna units simultaneously.
