Hapbeat is a strap on speaker that will make you feel like you’re at a club
Hapbeat dat? Bass in your face.
What’s better than listening to the music you love through great sound? Well Hapbeat aims to revolutionise the art of listening to music by adding a tantalising feature.
By wearing the Hapbeat device, the listener becomes enthralled in an ‘outer body’ vibrational encounter. It provides the experience of listening to music at a club or music festival.
We all know how bewilderingly magical that “festival” feeling is when it comes to listening to your favourite music.
Standing there getting full body goosebumps, sky-rocketing you to sonic bliss. With Hapbeat we can achieve that elation in our own homes, or anywhere else for that matter!
By combining motor technology with string, the mechanism is able to send powerful vibrations throughout a “wide body area”.
Fashioned from University research, Hapheat was initially not intended for commercial use- But when passion strikes, passion must be shared.
Crowdfunding has become one of the most popular models for obtaining funds to catapult ideas into fruition. You put your project or idea up on crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter and then people who believe in your product give you funding.
What’s great about this is that you get funding from people who are also passionate about seeing your product succeed. It’s people who would like to make use of what you want to create.
There’s something beautifully personal about crowdfunding. Although you don’t personally know them, it is basically like a crowd of cheerleaders throwing money from the stands.
There’s nothing better than adding a sense to an experience- sound and touch- there is also nothing better than adding ‘cents’ to said sensorial experience to make it a reality.
Let’s hope Hapbeat gets funded. It sounds like an awesome gadget.
