Title (EN) HAPTIC CHAIR SOUND ENHANCING SYSTEM WITH AUDIOVISUAL DISPLAY
(FR) SYSTÈME D'AMÉLIORATION SONORE DE CHAISE HAPTIQUE AYANT UN AFFICHAGE AUDIOVISUEL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A sound enhancing system includes a haptic chair formed of a chair and plural speakers mounted to the chair. The speakers receive audio input from a subject audio source and generate corresponding sound vibrations. The chair is configured to deliver the generated sound vibrations to various body parts of a user seated in the chair through the sense of touch and by bone conduction of sound. A visual display viewable by the user corresponds to the generated sound vibrations and is indicative of the corresponding audio input. The sound enhancing system enhances user experience of the audio input by any one or combination of visually, by the sense of touch, and by bone conduction of sound.
(FR)La présente invention porte sur un système d'amélioration sonore qui comprend une chaise haptique formée d'une chaise et de plusieurs haut-parleurs montés sur la chaise. Les haut-parleurs reçoivent une entrée audio d'une source audio de sujet et génèrent des vibrations sonores correspondantes. La chaise est configurée pour transmettre les vibrations sonores générées aux diverses parties du corps d'un utilisateur assis sur la chaise par le toucher et la conduction osseuse du son. Un affichage visuel visible par l'utilisateur correspond aux vibrations sonores générées et est indicatif de l'entrée audio correspondante. Le système d'amélioration du son améliore l’expérience utilisateur d'entrée audio de manière visuelle et/ou par le toucher et/ou la conduction osseuse du son ou par une combinaison de ces manières.
