Luminsonic - image of concentric black and white blurred circles in the background with red and orange paint splats in the midground and a Wii-remote controller in the foreground. After catching more on Lumisonic, an audio-spectrum-analyser aimed at deaf people, whilst watching a bit of See Hear I decided to post a link. It's a system that is intended to be a more meaningful way for deaf people to experiment with sounds that they can make themselves.

It runs on a Mac or Windows computers using a microphone, and can even be hooked up to a Wii remote with blue-tooth connection. When the user vocalises, concentric circles appear on-screen, closely related to the sounds expanding and contracting.

Looks like a very fun sensory activity for anyone. Free download available via the Sonic Arts Network with links to BBC Videos too.
