Wearable device for one-person procedural musical performances



Using a set of 6 vibration motors, Rhythmic Skin transmits haptic messages to the performer, in order to give essential information about the different layers of music. Using a Teensy micro-controller, it can connect as a MIDI instrument, making it possible to connect to many audio softwares.
