Synesthesiatic Feeling to Normal People With This Suit..

OVERVIEW:-

The latest invention… A synesthete might perceive the left panel like the panel on the right high-tech suit which can make the normal people realize the feeling of the synesthesiatic people. In layman words, synesthesia is such a condition where Synesthetes can taste sounds, smell colors or see scents and researchers prove that these people experience the reality differently.

WHAT is SYNESTHESIA ??

A synesthete might perceive the left panel like the panel on the right
  • Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. People who report a lifelong history of such experiences is known as synesthetes. In one common form of synesthesia, known as grapheme-color synesthesia or color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored.

    Synesthetes see characters just as others do but may simultaneously perceive colors as associated with or evoked by each one.

The Synesthesia Suit provides immersive embodied experience in Virtual Reality environment with vibrotactile sensations on the entire body. Each vibrotactile actuator provides not a simple vibration such as a traditional game controller, but it is designed on the haptic sensation based on the haptic design method was have developed in the TECHTILE[1] technology. It was originally developed as the Synesthesia Suit for promoting a game called “Rez infinite”, which was been developed for PlayStation VR, and the Synesthesia Suit only for the press at the PlayStation Experience in December 2015. Haptic sensations were designed in accordance with the world of “Rez”. People who experienced this suit were immersed by haptic sense as well as 360-degree 3D vision and music so that they felt as if they got into a groove.

  • Components & Acknowledgements-
Working-Synesthesiatic Engine

Synesthesia Suit provides vibrotactile sensations on the entire body through 24 channel voice coil actuators. The suit was designed to be easy-to-wear and available for various body size. The actuators are put on the shoulder, upper arm, lower arm, back of the hand, hip, thigh, knee, shin, instep, stomach, and back.This work was supported by JST-ACCEL Embodied Media project and technically supported by Mr. 2bit ISHII and Rhizomatiks team. The costume was designed by Mr. Toshihiko Sakurai.

USER EXPERIENCE:-

  • Synesthesia between music and full-body haptics.

    Experiencing the Suit

The music is played through the user body, and the user feels as if becomes to the music itself. Tones of the musical instrument from BGM or sound effects are mapped to each part of the body and the user feels as if the sounds run through the body.

  • Synesthesia between music and full-body haptics.

The other one has embodied interaction with the VR environment, there is various type of items with different haptic sensation. The user can touch or bump into various objects by actively using its entire body, or slip through the wall of light.

  • This is really a great piece of work which can help the synesthetes to create their space in the world and make the world realize how it feels to synesthesiatic people.As more and more people will experience the feeling, more of them will be able to work together to help the synesthetes.
