Will dental patients be asking dentists to upload their MP3 music to their mouth anytime soon?
It appears that one young college student has worked out the design concept.
Aisen Chacin, a student at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, recently created a digital music player for the mouth by attaching a vibrating motor to a mold of her upper teeth.
Her idea was to be able to hear music via ‘bone conduction’ through the skull so that when music is played, the vibration to the bone would be so strong that songs are clearly heard — without the need for headsets or earbuds.
She was successful with her invention, which resembles the popular teeth grills that many rappers wear. Chacin also installed controls on the underside of the piece so that music lovers can change their music or increase the volume with just their tongues.
Her music-grill device is featured in this video from YouTube —
