The Visually Immersive and Tactile Animation system (VITA)

A tool developed within the IMDC known as MusicViz attemps to provide meaningful visualizations of music based on a psychological model of perceptual equivalents between the auditory and visual system. This is combined with a haptic feedback chair such as the Emotichair to provide a full set of tools for users to experience the emotional and informational aspects of music. The combined experience of these two tools together is known as the Visually Immersive and Tactile Animation system or VITA.
