antonios bouris‘s insight:

Mogees is an innovative new way for everyone to let their musical imagination run wild, transforming the objects around us into unique and powerful musical instruments. Mogees consists of a mobile app and a small sensor that detects and analyses the vibrations that we make when we interact with the objects around us, and uses a special sound technique to alter their acoustic properties so as to make them musical. Above all, it’s about everyone making beautiful music out of ordinary objects.
