Re-Wired – Amelia Marzec

Re-wired is is a wearable device that translates ambient sound into haptic feedback using bone conduction technology. After losing hearing in one ear due to a tumor, Marzec became aware that experiencing sound through bone conduction was possible; she decided to adapt bone conduction technology into a helmet, in order to share her emerging haptic perception of sound without the necessity of surgery.

Amelia Marzec has created several prototypes that address sound and communication. She holds an MFA from the Parsons School of Design and was a resident at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center.
