New Technology Possesses Your Hand To Play Music
If you’ve ever learned to play a musical instrument, you know that it takes a lot of time, patience and practice. Many people simply don’t have the time or resources to peruse their musical aspirations, so they never bother trying. Well, Rekimoto Lab in Japan is hoping to bring musical prowess to anyone who dreams of of becoming a musician. Their technique requires no time or patience, just a willingness to have your hand possessed!
Rekimoto Lab has appropriately named their creation “Possessed Hand”. It consists of an armband which contains 28 electrode pads. When the pads are charged, they stimulate muscles in the user’s wrist and fingers. Various hand positions can be formed using the device, allowing the user to play sweet beautiful music.
The Possessed hand has already been used to help people learn to play the koto. Pretty amazing technology, though I think I’ll stick to the old fashioned way of learning to pluck!
