The Motion Sonic project translates motion into one of five presets

At the SXSW festival, Sony introduced an experimental device that can transform body movements into sound. For the Motion Sonic project, their goal is “a complete synchronization between physical sensation and sound.”

The wristband has three microphones to capture the sound of movement, which are combined with a 6-axis sensor to seamlessly express fine and varied movements in diverse audio tones. It also features LED illuminations linked to movements.

The device translates sounds into one of five presets (motion sonic, robot, clapping, motion filter, arm jockey), which perform various functions such as turning your arms into musical instruments and adding filters to tunes. You can check out the experimental wristband in the video below:
