Google Science Fair: Listening to Music through Vibration

At the age of 14, Jonah Kohn has made great progress in helping the hearing impaired experience music. Through his passion for music, Jonah realized that by utilizing tactile sound, he could invent a device that transmits sound directly into the human body by contact, instead of by sound waves. Specifically, his invention converts sound into vibrations that are applied to different body parts. Jonah was the winner of the 13-14 age group in the 2012 Google Science for his project.
