The multisensory technology will revolutionise cinema, theatre, concerts, gaming, meditation and therapy, and offer an affordable home cinema to everyone
For over 100 years, we’ve only used our eyes and ears to watch movies and listen to music, but FLEXOUND Augmented Audio™ creates a unique, holistic, immersive listening experience that you can feel as well as hear. It combines full-range high-quality audio with gentle physical sound wave vibration, to add the sensation of touch to any listening experience, be it music, games, television, streaming, meditation, movies, VR or any other sound content. Originally designed and engineered in Finland to help autistic children, the technology solves problems and adds value in many industries.
Our sense of touch is amazingly sensitive to sound and has been consistently underused in high-quality audio, until now. FLEXOUND aims to make audio a whole-body experience that enhances quality of life. Unlike loudspeakers that vibrate sound into the air, FLEXOUND Augmented Audio™ radiates the vibration through foam, providing a soft, near-field listening experience. Patented FLEXOUND Augmented Audio™ technology can be embedded into seats, cushions and anything that is soft and in contact with the body.
FLEXOUND Pulse™ seat, for example, is the world’s first fully loudspeaker-free cinema concept that transforms any space – small or large – into a superior, immersive soundscape and multisensory cinema. Stores, malls, auditoriums, museums, live theatres and concert arenas can all become fully functioning cinemas or gaming stations without any external loudspeakers. At home, you can use it as your office meeting audio instead of loudspeakers, as a gaming station, for sound massage or to enjoy a premium cinema experience from the comfort of your living room.
With FLEXOUND Pulse™, You Can Sit Inside the Sound
It creates a personal soundsphere and a deeper focus and immersion into music, stories, relaxation or gaming. The multisensory experience of FLEXOUND Pulse™ also enhances the emotions created by the content, enriching art and making it accessible to more people, such as the hearing impaired.
Previously, the sound frequencies felt in a cinema would mostly be the thump of the high-powered subwoofers firing sub-bass at you. With FLEXOUND Pulse™ you are able to literally feel frequencies up to 500 hertz with your body, and even up to 1,000 hertz with your hands and skin. Because FLEXOUND Pulse™ does not rely on far field listening or filling a room with decibels like traditional loudspeakers, sound leakage from room to room is considerably less.
FLEXOUND Pulse™ provides equal sound quality and the sensation of touch for every person, in every seat. By listening through your skin as well as your ears, you don’t need as many decibels to achieve clarity of speech, and dramatic scores and sound effects won’t ever drown out dialogue, even during the most chaotic action movie sequences.
