I was browsing the internet today when I stumbled across this item on Kickstarter:

So it’s essentially a watched sized gadget, that uses some form of wizardry to trick your body into thinking the bass of whatever music you’re listening to is really rumbling, almost as if you were stood infront of a giant speaker, or in a club.
Initially I was pretty skeptical – but then you look at who’s involved, and the reactions of those who’ve tried it.
Former employees from Spotify and Ableton are all over this product, and their testimonial videos are from respected artists – put simply, this seems like the real deal.
It seems to be aimed at music producers too – with the company essentially saying you can experience monitor-quality bass and audio wherever you are.
What do you think, is this a good idea? Can it work? Have you reached for your wallet yet?
