Full Body Sound's flagship product is a handheld device that receives audio and outputs tactile audio stimulation. The device includes:
audio input and audio output ports
stimulation intensity control (you choose how much you want to feel)
two electrode ports to feel both left and right audio (yep, that's full stereo)
How It Works
The fundamental technology behind Full Body Sound (FBS) was derived from Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) devices. These medical devices have been around for decades and have offered pain relief to hundreds of thousands of people.
The core difference between the FBS device and a TENS unit is our patent pending signal conditioning. Unlike a TENS unit that outputs a uniform square wave at different frequencies and amplitudes, our device takes an audio signal and conditions it to create electrically stimulating outputs.
The Experience: Feel the Music
Full Body Sound wants to break the haptic barrier,
music lovers shouldn't be limited to bass.
We listened to our users and incorporated unique features not found in any other haptic devices:
Our product utilizes both left and right audio channels providing full stereo to the user. What the user hears on the right can be be felt on the right side of their body, providing an informative audio environment.
More than Bass
Bass is important and has kicked us into the tactile audio revolution. Full Body Sound does bass, but there are so many more exciting frequencies to feel. Vocals, String Instruments, Trumpets etc. Our device outputs high frequencies as well as low, making it applicable to all music genres.
-The Full Body Sounds product offers a unique multi user experience.
1. Place one electrode on yourself and the other on a friend.
2. When the two of you touch the circuit is completed and the music can be felt by both.
3. Share a musical and electrical connection like never before.
