Anyone can become a musician with KAGURA, a platform that makes body motion music. No instruments are needed, just a computer, a webcam and a body. The new Japan-based technology uses a patented image processor to sense body movement and then translate it into sound.

Making body motion music with KAGURA might be a fun item for people to play with at home or at a party but there's a lot to be said for it as a business tool. From a commercial perspective, this product has the ability to be used in a variety of ways: to create fun and active experiences for children, to enhance music therapy, to allow fans to experience concerts in a new way or perhaps to teach dance in a new manner. Innovations like KAGURA can help transform how companies do business.
