SubPac: A Portable Tactile Device That Connects You To The Physical Dimension Of Sounds [video]


SubPac is a portable tactile audio device that quietly and directly transfers low frequencies to your body, allowing you to feel music.

The SubPac connects you to a new dimension in sound – the physical dimension. It can connect you to your favorite music, movies or games. This is not a simple ‘vibration device.’ It’s more like a quiet, high-end sub-woofer that generates a dynamic, rich and accurate tactile representation of whatever sound you input.

However, the SubPac does NOT separate the audio signal into lows vs. mids/highs like a traditional sub-woofer crossover. It transfers low frequencies to the body while maintaining the original signal to your headphones / external speaker system. In addition the SubPac does not utilize artificial bass enhancement effects; rather, it delivers a flat, true signal to the user.

SubPac is used with any line in, and is used in conjunction with any headphones or speaker set-up. It is used in any seated, or laying position and its intensity is fully adjustable.
