Serendiptichord: Musical Prosthetics And Computable Fashion
A different approach to wearable technology showcases the potential of musical prosthetics to unlock creative interaction possibilities.
Wearable technology and smart fabrics increasingly concentrate on seamless, invisible integration of technology into our clothing, but the Serendiptichord takes a different approach to the creative possibilities of wearable computing.
While some projects have sought to make regular clothing into a performative interface the Serendiptichord functions instead as an technologically extended limb, or as Di Mainstone prefer to term it “a choreophonic prosthetic”. The device is intended to maximize curious interaction with it’s user.
