DESIGN DETAILS

Ampathy

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vibration Speaker

INSPIRATION:
Ampathy is a compound word for 'amplifier'; and 'empathy'. The speaker substitutes sound into solid vibration, and amplifies the listener's emotions with it. Ampathy can produce sound and vibration together, so deaf people can communicate culturally by enjoying music or movie together with their friends and families.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
People who have auditory disorders were isolated from communications with others. They were excluded from social cultural activities such as listening to music or watching a movie. They cannot hear sounds, but they are very sensitive to vibrations. This speaker substitutes sound into solid vibration, and amplifies the listener's emotions with it. Ampathy can produce sound and vibration together, so deaf people can communicate culturally by enjoying music or movie together with their friends and families.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Visual interactions with the shape of tidal wave helps hearing-impaired people to recognize the operational status of the object for convenient using experience. So the users can control the upper touch panel intuitionally.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in january 2017 and finished in march 2017 in Seoul

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Upper, lower register speakers and a vibration module is installed in the speaker for three-dimensional vibration experience and wireless rechargeable device is installed for easy battery recharge when the device is on the cradle. The surface is made with fabric material for soft sensation, and with the interaction which is inspired by the wave of water, the users can control the upper touch panel intuitionally.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The motif of my design began with the comic written by a deaf artist. That artist love music but she can’t listen music. so she feel the little vibration of the music from the speaker. I saw that scene, thought that I can make some speaker for her to feel the music and sound. For this project, I have been living with my ears closed to experience the hearing impaired people’s life. It’s so lonely to live as a deaf because of the lack of communication. I want to make them enjoy cultural enjoyment equally, and I will design some devices like Ampathy.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult task was to create the devices shapes. I continued thinking about form which appropriate for feeling vibration. and made several soft mock-ups After that, I drew some sketches from my shape inspirations and make 3D modeling & rendering with rhino 3D & Keyshots. At last, I edited images using a photoshops It was little bit hard because I didn’t make my previous project in that quality
