Don’t have room for a guitar, piano, or drum kit in your house? By slipping on these high-tech gloves from Remidi, you could compose music just by moving your hands.
The Remidi T8 is made up of one glove and a detachable, motion sensitive bracelet. The bracelet controls effects like reverb, echo, and tempo while sensors in the glove detect pressure. By tapping your fingers and palm against a table, wall, or even your leg, you can build a melody from scratch using sounds you hand-picked yourself.
“You can programme an ‘A’ chord from a heavy metal guitar on your thumb and a sample line from Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger; on your pinky,” the description reads on the product’s Kickstarter page. “Touch these two together and they’ll play simultaneously, or play them separately for isolated tracks.”
After downloading the T8’s app, users can programme the glove with the notes, sounds, and samples of their choice. The app also includes recording software, so any masterpieces created on-the-fly won’t be lost. The wearable instrument can also be used in live performances.
