Liron Gino, a graduate from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, has crafted a collection of jewelry-like devices that let deaf people feel the music through its vibrations.

The system, comprising of necklace, bracelet and pins with small disc-like units, connects to the music source via Bluetooth and turns tracks into vibrations, notes Innovation Essence.

A user can wear the gadget, which on contact with the skin creates an “alternative sensory system,” letting hearing-impaired people experience the music, writes Dezeen. The gadget also allows one to share the experience with a hearing person by pairing up with headphones.
