About Feelbelt

Make the digital World feel real – The feelbelt with its pioneering technologie can reproduce frequencies 10 to 20,000 Hz in the form of haptic feedback, allowing you to ‘feel’ every beat in the music or every movement in any video game, especially in virtual reality. Feelbelt enables the fusion of the real and virtual worlds, making entertainment experiences of all kinds increasingly immersive. The belt is one of the first concrete products that is real in the field of metaverse and even makes this metaverse realizable. The Feelbelt can unfold its full potential here: Placed around the waist, ten integrated pulse generators transfer the sound of a game, song or movie to the body. The worldwide patented software links to the respective audio signal, converts it into Haptic Feedback 2.0 and transmits it to the body in sync with what is heard. Not only low bass frequencies, but even high tones can be felt on the body, giving people with hearing disabilities the chance to perceive sound in its full range for the first time. In this way, the Feelbelt integrates not only the senses of vision and sound, but also the sense of touch into the immersive experience of multimedia content and thus increases emotions in real-time. 

Feelbelt GmbH is a MediaTech startup from Potsdam, Germany and was founded in 2019. Production takes place at local partners in Berlin and Brandenburg. For every Feelbelt sold, the company plants an oak tree.
