SubPac

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2016SubPac is an audio hardware company founded in 2013 whose technology transfers low frequencies directly to users' bodies to add a new dimension to music listening and allow listeners to "feel" sound. The tactile audio technology is currently patent pending and is a product of Canada-based independent music platform StudioFeed. Headquartered in Los Angeles, SubPac also has offices in the Bay Area, London, and Toronto. The SubPac M series, first launched in 2013, is a wearable subwoofer optimized for bass that is as easy to carry as a backpack, which is useful for DJs and gamers. In 2015 SubPac worked with electronic music producer Amon Tobin on a collaborative project with Peugeot: a music-based concept car called 'the Fractal'. Launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Sept 2015, it features SubPac technology embedded into the seats allowing each passenger to simultaneously have a bass experience unique to their seat position. Next up, the company is looking to expand into virtual reality--an area in which the company already has a good start. In June 2015, SubPac partnered with Universal to create a two-and-a-half-minute VR experience around the release of Jurassic World called Jurassic World: Apatosaurus.
