ImogenHeap demonstrates Mi.Mu’s latest wearable tech…

Run by a Not-For-Profit Mi.Mu the team consisting of creatives and artist of all sorts came together to make this revolutionary wearable technology.
Comprised of motion sensor tech, electronic algorithms and appropriated textiles.
That make up a comprehensive and elegant glove controller. In the works since its debut at TED Global and Wired 2012. @ImogenHeap demonstrates how to use these awesome new gloves.

The gloves that will “change the way we make music”, with Imogen Heap from Dezeen on Vimeo.


The developments have lead to these new and exciting proto-types shown and demonstrated by English singer-songwriter and creative musical genius Imogen Heap. Who gives a great overview of some of the capabilities the Gloves comprise of and show just how active and artist can really be as well as the cohesion between the abilities of the wearer and the gloves themselves. Which seem to compute customary  to wearers hands. Bring dexterity and mobility to the dimension of computing and perhaps could lead to even more revelations in health and robotics.


These are the maestro tech gloves are equipped with motion-trackers, haptic motors, LED’s, X-OSC and textiles that make up what is changing the way people navigate their cpu and make music interacting directly to the programing to make and fluctuate through sounds and riffs remotely and seamlessly. In a light weight, compact and self-contained system. The secret is the X-OSC which transfers the data computed in the gloves directly to the device its programing via Wi-fi enabling the gloves to work wirelessly and intuitively with your motions and signals. Its design makes the user capable to make the interactions all the while looking pretty stylish as well maintaining the aesthetics needed to make it more comfortable and accepted to the masses. Mi.Mu even boast on the site that the tech is “Robust, hand-washable and Beautiful” which if proven to be true make these a household item we might find in our washing machines and back on our hands.
