The ORB is a voice-based vibrating device, which maps the voice signal into tactile vibrating sensation to provide awareness of physical processes involved in the vocal production process. Because fingertips contain more sensory receptors than our vocal vibrating chamber, holding the ORB while vocalizing gives access to elements of individuality and affect that often remain latent in the everyday experience of voice. The project is a part of a bigger group project called Vocal Vibrations. A first prototype of the ORB was demonstrated in spring 2013 and got a very good reception. People who tested the ORB reacted very strongly to this new connection to their voice, which makes us confident of the potential of this system in domains such as tool design for the deaf community, design of HCI interfaces for speech disorder treatment or prosody and language acquisition for children, or in the domain of wellbeing and subclinical treatment of depression.
