The Chromehatic is an unusual hat, one of a series, described as ‘an amalgamation of modernistic headwear design and tangible digital technology.’
Here’s a demo of it in action:
In the video, FEMME demonstrates the controller and then uses it in a musical performance.
Here’s what the developers have to say about Chromehatic:
Chromehatic is an entry into the flourishing world of wearable-tech that far from being merely an item of geeky attraction it enthralls with its intricate construction and stunning visual design.
The wearer becomes both character and director, through the close coupling of an almost costume-like aesthetic and the ability to control sound through movement, voice and touch.
The Chromehatic is part of the SENSEries project, a collaboration between milliner and headwear designer Jodie Cartman and musician and instrument builder Crewdson.
