Drum Kit Assists Learning With Haptic Feedback
The Haptic Drum Kit aids in fostering rhythm and coordination skills in novice drummers.
The Haptic Drum Kit is one of the projects featured at MIT’s Conference On Tangible, Embedded And Embodied Interaction. The device aids in fostering rhythm and coordination skills in novice drummers through the use of computer-controlled vibrotactile wrist and anklebands. Working with musicians and researchers in music learning, the system incorporates insights into the benefits of both haptic and auditory signals applied to learning.
