Outline

The “Synesthesia Suit” was created to embody the multi-sensory concept behind the VR (virtual reality) video game “Rez Infinite”. Placed throughout the suit are actuators that vibrate alongside the musi c and are designed to deliver the different vibrational textures throughout the person’s body. The addition of LEDs and synchronized light patterns translate the vibration in a visual manner, allowing the audience to also feel and experience the concept.
