An interactive garment that aims to redefine how people play music.
MACHINA has come up with a unique MIDI Jacket that is not only a functional outerwear, but also allows the wearer to DJ on the go. When you wear it, you can control the various parameters of the software by simply interacting with the jacket or moving around. There’s an accelerometer built-in the sleeve so the wearer can produce certain sounds just by bending or waving their arm.
The jacket aims to “redefine controllerism” as the DJ can move around, rather than hunched over a keyboard and screen. Watch the video below for a demonstration of the MIDI Jacket.
