Listening to music can enhance the experience of exercising, but for people who are deaf or have difficulty hearing, this benefit is often not available. To address this, we propose BBEAT that expands the sensory experience through auditory touch. It includes a subwoofer and a bone conduction speaker that conveys the rhythm and echo of the music. By feeling the music through vibration and tactile feedback, people of all abilities can enjoy the benefits of exercising to music and feel the joy. It is not only helpful for those who are deaf or elderly, but also for anyone who wants to enhance their exercise routine and make it more engaging.
