Buzz: How it works

Buzz captures the sound around you and translates it into rich vibrational patterns.

It’s as simple as learning to recognize patterns

When we become fluent in a language, learn to ride a bike, or nail that golf swing, we form associations with patterns of information from our physical world. Buzz is a wearable device that takes in sound and translates it into vibrational patterns on the skin. With practice, these associations become automatic and a new sense is born. You’ll experience the difference on the first day you wear it. And, it only gets better from there.

Our technology is developed by leading neuroscientists, crafted by designers, and backed by Silicon Valley. See our TED Talk “Can we create new senses for humans?”
