"Flutter gives vibrotactile feedback in the direction of a loud sound or 
alarm to help those with hearing loss respond more intuitively to their 
external environment"

Nice design.  I looked around to see if there was any video of anything 
of the dress actually operating on a person, but I couldn't find 
anything.  The vibrating elements are in the little "winglets", it might 
actually be rather hard to feel them, but I bet they put on an 
interesting show!

Also not shown: where are the batteries?
