Gastrophonic   (+2)  [vote for, against]
Chest Cavity Sub (some surgery neccessary)

This is an invention for walkman listeners, to get the effect of listening to pounding base with tiny speakers. The speakers will be in a hygenic pod and will be welded to the inside of the sternum, the tiny pulses will cause a vibration that causes your whole rib-cage to pound. Although it won't actually be loud, it will feel loud and won't disturb fellow commuters.

Also this will enable deaf people to listen to dance music on a walkman.p

Will it be felt, as in the case of rolling-boom-boxes, by neighbo(u)ring commuters and the like?

I'd have named the idea "Sternaphonic" ("sterna" is a plural of "sternum"), and let people wonder if I was punning "Stereophonic".

Came back after I realized the possibilities if it was a gastronomic amplifier...

//will be welded to the inside of the sternum// does this mean I can get one fitted at my local garage?

"won't disturb fellow commuters...Also this will enable deaf people to listen to dance music on a walkman."

Um, why? If you're on a train, you've got some pretty good bass rumbles going already, without any need for portable gimmicks.

When you go for your annual exam, put a tape/disc in your walkman that plays stethoscope recordings of very obscure maladies to give your physician a cheap thrill.

"pounding base"

Thought this was some kind of drugs reference.

Regarding the name, it's close enough and I liked the ring of gastrophonic, it rolls out nicely.

This device will quite possibly lead to digestive problems through increased peristalsis ie: insufficient time for the stomach to absorb the nutrients, could be used as a form of weight loss. Additionally it may be marketed as an ab-erciser when played at Max Volume.
