Kanjun Qiu demonstrates the soundie, her awesome musical touch-sensitive light-up hoodie, aka the hoodie synthesizer.
Qiu created the hoodie synthesizer using the LilyPad Arduino, designed by MIT High-Low Tech guru Leah Buechley.
According to Qiu, “The hoodie was designed with purely artistic intentions and with absolutely no practical applications in mind.”
Take one look at the words hoodie and synthesizer put together, though, and you know you want one of these things!
Who needs practical applications when you’ve got a hoodie synthesizer?
If you feel the need for more hoodie synth, Qiu has put together a tutorial on making one.
