Electronic Music Gets a Boost With Air Harp’s Motion Sensor Interface

Making and listening to music on digital devices can feel like typing out a long essay – but what if all that changes? Imagine strumming the cords of a harp by waving your fingers. That’s the future of music interface. Yes, it is less tactile than playing a real instrument, but its motion sensitive experience comes closer to actual instruments than a keyboard and mouse or even gestures on iPhones.

Adam Somers is the creative mind behind the new technology and has generously made the development code available on Github – if you have the technological chops, you can help to improve the code. For others, this video is worth getting excited about.
