The VibrationCap is a beanie cap with 19 integrated ERM-type vibration motors which can be controlled individually through a Bluetooth Low Energy connection. It was built to study the vibrotactile sensitivity of the human head. The use-cases for such vibration wearables are ranging from navigational aid and use as a study tool all the way to entertainment (e.g. visualizing music).
