From Wearable Musical Prosthetics to Music-Playing Jewelry

 - Mar 24, 2014
While wearable tech is sure having its moment in the spotlight right now, wearable musical instruments are also taking their place on the stage. These wearable music-makers range from wrist attachments that pick up on the movements of fingers to full-on body suits that compose sounds as dictated by the wearer’s range of motions.

Although pieces like Di Mainstone’s 'Human Harp' might seem a little bit avant grade, commercial artists like Imogen Heap are experimenting with pairs of gloves that will translate hand movements into sound.

If you’ve never been any good when it comes to learning an instrument, but more inclined to dance, perhaps with the help of wearable musical instruments, a musician can be made out of you after all.
