Japan – Synesthesia X1 is an experiential and holistic device created to make listeners feel fully absorbed in sound.
Incorporating two speakers and 44 haptic actuators, the reclined-chair device allows users to ‘see sounds’ and ‘hear colours’. With vibrations and light-focused technologies creating a multi-sensory experience, users are able to feel fully immersed in ‘a sensory musical experience where your body becomes the medium and your consciousness is honed,' according to its designers.
Encased within a giant cube, it invites people to discover heightened sound sensations as part of a whole body experience. With consumers increasingly prioritising experiences that focus on self-discovery over shared spectacles, Synesthesia X1 raises the bar for hyper personal, high tech listening experiences.
