200315 – Sensors to make music

Testing different ways of triggering sounds for Body Instrument which will embed the circuit in fabric as a Smart Suit:

  1. Copper Button
  2. Capacitive Touch
  3. Bend
  4. Gyro / Acceleration

Microcontroller: Teensy 3.2

Coding in Arduino

Music Software: Ableton Live

 

The videos below show various tests of a motion sensor, bend and touch sensors.


The images below show the electronics that will be embedded in the body suit’s right hand Smart Glove, able to play sounds while controlling lights and/or visual art in real-time by moving the hand, bending fingers and touching, all visualized with addressable LEDs.
