The experimental Mi.Mu glove lets users control sounds with their hand movements.

The musician Imogen Heap has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring an experimental glove into production, enabling people to control sounds with their hands. The Mi.Mu glove aims to change how music is made and produced by breaking down the barriers between musicians and machines, helping artists to interact with the sounds they are creating.

The glove captures hand movements and gestures, and the software allows this information to be mapped to musical control messages, which can then be routed to the chosen music software. The compact and lightweight glove requires little more than a laptop to function.

Mi.Mu enables musicians to simply raise their arm instead of turning up a fader, or move a sound around the room just by pointing. This experience is also enjoyable to watch, making it easier for the audience to connect with the performer. You can check out the campaign video below:
