So to put a long story short, I have a younger brother who loves to play counter strike. I don't play it much myself any more but do remember the fun I used to have on it when I was younger. The thing is, he is deaf (or very close to) and he feels very disadvantaged that he can't use sound to help him not get surprised by opponents.
I essentially want to try make a headset to help him out, which would be a vibrating headset. My idea was that it would have a digital input and the output would be a small vibrator that would vibrate based on amplitude. I'm hoping that each channel can activate a separate vibration.
It definitely won't be perfect, but at least in the end of much 2v2/1v1 it'd allow him to hear anyone sneaking up behind him.
I'm happy to trawl through the wealth of information available on the forums, I just want to know if its possible and any good tips on where to start.
any help is sincerely appreciated, I'm pretty excited to try this and surprise my brother when it's done
