A Magic Wand for Blind Musicians
A Gripping films production for BBC Stories and BBC Ouch
Kyungho Jeon is a virtuoso percussionist from South Korea. He dreams of playing with an orchestra, but his visual impairment means he can’t follow a conductor.
A father and son team of inventors have created the ‘Haptic Baton’ which converts the conductor’s movements into vibrations, and could revolutionise the way all musicians play together.
