Environment navigation audio-haptic makes music the way hands free (video)

You’ve heard of pianists, flutists and organists, but have you heard of Thereminists? The title originally applied to players of another instrument hands-free in the 1920s was redirected to those who can manipulate sound hidden in a 3D space called a browser environment audio-haptic (Ahne). By twisting a Kinect sensor and using the framework and Open OSCeleton, researchers at the Research Group at the Media Lab SOPI Helsinki were able to create a Ahne concept show called tension. Equipping volunteer charged with sensor gloves with a vibration motor for small haptic feedback, they were able to create the music – add a pinch of Pitbull, and looking ahead to the world wide anthem sweet. Check out the video music full after the break.
