Sony Unveils Wristband That Turns Motion Into Sound
Sony is developing a new, experimental audio wristband that detects movements in the user’s hand to create corresponding sound. A part of Sony’s Motion Sonic project, we’re sure will be seeing more interesting devices like this in the near future.
We used 3 microphones to capture the whooshing sound of movement. And by combining them with the 6-axis sensor we made it possible to seamlessly express fine and varied movements in diverse audio tones.
So far, there are five different sounds that the wristband can create: Motion Sonic, Robot, Clapping, Motion Filter, and Arm Jockey. The video above is what we presume to be Robot, and it is performed by 4th grader, Watanabe Takeshi.
