Music and Bits – The Mustick is a party starter

Instead of only talking about music or online music applications there was also a chance to perform! Mustick allows you to rock out and be a star even if you aren’t that musically talented.

Conceived from a Industrial Design TU/e project on embodied interaction, Mustick is a design that allows non-musicians to perform songs of their favourite artists. The device is exemplary of products allowing non-musicians to perform songs without the steep learning curves common in musical instruments. These designs use the expressive powers of the human body to interact with pre-recorded music in meaningful ways. (Mustick)

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

See the Mustick in action at the Music and Bits event:

The device reminded me somewhat of a wooden lightsabre. However, it’s only using sensors and no light effects so it’s very energy efficient, a few batteries and the Mustick can last up to weeks.
