A wearable, portable square-wave synthesizer designed to be worn around the wrist so that he or she can be musically expressive whenever the moment strikes them.
Rows of buttons run along the underside of the wearer's wrist for triggering of musical tones and a light sensor is available for shifting the pitch of the tones being played. This design allows for a form of musical expression that integrates itself very intimately with the human body. Tapping with the fingers plays tones and movement of the wrist and arm shifts these tones in pitch up and down.
My interest in music, musical expression, and wearable technology brought me to the conception of this project. Not being a train musician, I've always been interested in exploring ways to be musically expressive outside of most traditional methods. I wanted to give myself and others the ability to project themselves in a musical way.
In addition, I'm very interested in how technology can be integrated into our wearable environment and once technology becomes an extension of our body, how this ubiquity is taken advantage by our drive to be expressive.
