The Soli is a gesture-controlled audio device that allows consumers to construct their own melodies and notes using their hands rather than an instrument. The gadget utilizes advanced technology to allow creatives to explore creating sound using body movement.

Soli is an extension of the Google Project Soli that allows consumers to perform gestures such as rubbing their fingers together to create a tang one might hear by plucking on the cords of a violin. The device is able to read the sound through a radar-enabled technology and match the gesture to a pitch. As the user increases the speed of their movements, the pitch becomes quicker as it responds directly to the gesture. The device allows consumers to create music organically without the need for the skill of playing an instrument.
