Midi Controller Jacket

Jacket Enables Wearers Create Music With Gestures

The Midi Controller jacket comes with controllers and sensors for creating music.

The jacket is designed with four flexible sensors that detect the user’s finger positions, an accelerometer to identify arm movement, a joystick and four buttons. The sensors can be connected to a computer or mobile device via WiFi, and are optimized to work with MIDI controllers. Users can set which functions the components correspond to like lifting the arm to raise the volume or change the pitch. The buttons can be programmed to make drum sounds or to loop a musical segment. The jacket can be connected to the Ableton Live music system and iOS and Android apps are in development.
