Here’s a sneak preview of the Remidi T8 – a MIDI controller that you wear on your hand as a glove, magnetically connected to a bracelet on your wrist which manages the settings.
The device is Bluetooth-enabled, connecting to MIDI-compatible music and video software.
“The T8 gives complete motion freedom, works on every surface and allows to combine motion with music, in order to perform and approach with music in a whole new way and free the art of sound,” notes Remidi.”The wristband hosts the control center, while the glove hosts 8 pressure sensitive spots to trigger notes. They plug to each other through the magnetic connector on the back of the hand. The motion sensors opens to a wider expression of music: players can still alter the sound while a notes already started, simply by moving their hand or twisting their wrist. The encoder on the bracelet has the main function to browse through users’ note sets. Players just turn it to switch from a note set to another, from a C scale to a F scale, from a famous song riff to a set of samples in just one touch.”
A Kickstarter campaign is planned to produce the Remidi T8. See the company’s site for more info.
