Why settle for just hearing your favorite tunes when you can feel it! The Kickstarter campaign for Woojer does just that! It’s a wearable subwoofer that’s as small as a matchbox that you wear. You’ll be able to feel the vibrations as you hear the music. And the cool thing about it is that you can wear it while playing your favorite video games. You’ll be able to play your favorite first person shooter game and feel the gun’s recoil and the shockwaves from explosions, making it feel as if you’re in the game! Paired with your favorite headset, the Woojer will completely immerse you in sound in whatever technology you combine with it like gaming, consoles, smartphones and more. It’s compatible with any headset and audio source so can you use it with all your devices.
To provide you with such vibrations, it uses perceptual inference, which is the brain’s ability to fill in the gaps from information given to the senses. The brain already knows what it’s like to feel some frequency from speakers, so when given a similar tactile input to certain points on your body, the brain will automatically interrupt that experience as a full body sensation. The Woojer’s sensation is is produced by a patent-pending transducer that “plays” the low frequencies, which is done silently so you can experience loud music without it bothering anyone else when out in public. Pledge $59 or more to get your own Woojer, but hurry, there’s not much left for the limited offer.
