The experimental device turns motion into one of five presets.
Sony has shown off an experimental prototype of a wristband that can be used to turn physical movement into sound.
This data is then translated into one of five different presets: motion sonic (which amplifies the wind noise created by your movements), robot, clapping, a motion-activated filter and arm jockey, which controls beats via arm movement.
Sony has shown the wristband in lots of situations, from simple air guitar to more complex choreographed performances involving a full dance troupe. However, the wristband doesn’t feature any speakers itself, instead relying on a connected device such as a smartphone to play music via external speakers.
Currently the Motion Sonic wristband is just a prototype with no price or release date, but it’s being shown off at SXSW in Austin.
