The app BW Dance provides people that have hearing impairments with a way to visualize the music they listen to.

If music is loud enough, people with hearing impairments are able to feel the beat through vibrations in their surroundings. When this is not the case or even if it is, these same people now have the opportunity to enjoy music in a more creative and playful way. The app is described as a "visual equalizer" and interprets songs using vibration signals and flashing lights. This allows people with hearing impairments to dance to music, and understand the rhythm and beat that the chosen song exhibits.

The BW Dance app works to make people with hearing problems more integrated in their environments, and as a result enhances their social enjoyment.
