Concertgoers are often in search of a truly unique music experience and thanks to the new Avnet wearable, fans of live music can now "feel" the music around them. Known as the 'Vibrotextile,' the wearable features a wrist and ankle strap that pulse in sync with the live musical performance. The Avnet wearable was originally conceived to give both deaf and hearing concertgoers a way to enjoy the music in a way felt through the body.

To ensure the experience is felt seamlessly, the Avnet wearable boasts "zero-latency vibrations," and allows wearers to have full control over the intensity of the vibrations. Wearers can also choose to emphasize certain instruments at various times, while performers can create distinct physical sensations in audience members.
