The 'Dropin' system has been designed as a set of equipment for those with hearing impairments to allow them to create their own music in a multi-sensory manner to ensure they can perform just like traditional musicians. The system works by utilizing a series of touchpads that will create vibration feedback along with visual cues on their smartphone to let them craft their own customized music to be enjoyed solo or shared with friends.

The 'Dropin' system is the design work of Sojeong Cha, Juan Lee, Junku Jung, Heo Kim and Sooah Park, and identifies how traditional practices are being upgraded for those with impairments for an enhanced sense of inclusion. This is achieved thanks to technological accessories along with creative thinking to help expand the creative capabilities of individuals.
