MI.MU gloves www.mimugloves.com
MI.MU gloves are a wifi-enabled wearable gestural interface which allow the user to compose, record and perform music with their hands.
MI.MU is a highly skilled team of musicians, artists, scientists and technologists developing cutting-edge wearable technology for the performance and composition of music. This musical glove system represents a truly elegant fusion of traditional textiles with advanced motion tracking electronics and algorithms. Combined with dedicated gesture detection and mapping software, mi.mu gloves offer a new and flexible approach to the control of music and visuals with intuitive human movement. Users experience a dramatic shift in their perceptions of music performance and composition as the technology fades away and what used to be a barrier to entry becomes an enabler of creative freedom.
Imagine, instead of turning up a fader in order to bring in a sound or add reverb, you could be raising your arms to achieve the same effect. Or to move a sound around the room, you could simply point where you want it to be.
