Remidi T8 – The Wearable Instrument
Remidi has began a Kickstarter project with the goal of creating a fully wearable instrument. The T-8 is a pair of gloves with ultra sensitive sensors placed in 8 different spots around your hand, and two motion sensors placed on your wrist. By doing this you have the chance to program the 8 pads with sounds, and add effects to the motion sensors.
The T-8 detects what to play based of what they call Air Modulation, which is pretty self explanatory. You are able to modulate your sound through air, by simply moving your hands with easy motion. The T-8 is also capable of switching between preset chosen scales which allows seamless transition from song to song. The only thing you need to play is a surface and some space.
The T-8 is currently available to those who back it on Kickstarter, so go ahead and back it as soon as possible to get a pair. If you are looking for a product to enhance your electronic performance the Remidi T-8 should be considered. It can also make for an interesting production tool, to get unique rhythms and organic sound manipulation.
