Wearable Woofer & Video Here
This is an idea that an Iranian student had when neighboring student's computer sound systems were 'drowning him out' while they played games in the dorms. His device doesn't bother others at all.
It works by pumping sound vibrations directly into your ribcage and give you the feeling of 'totally being there'. Everyone who has tried it wants one. I'm gonna buy one of these as soon as they are available in July.
This is what they have to say on their website:
Kor-FX from Immerz takes PC gaming, movie viewing and music enjoyment to
a whole new level. The technology is platform-independent and works

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I'm gonna get off of my 'Thrifty-Throne' and buy one of these suckers. The occasional splurge is not only justifiable, but sometime totally necessary for complete happiness.
I think it's gonna be balls-out cool.
