These High Tech Gloves Let You Create Music With Your Hands
Don't have room for a guitar, piano, or drum kit in your house? By slipping on these high-tech gloves from Remidi, you could compose music just by moving your hands.
The Remidi T8 is made up of one glove and a detachable, motion sensitive bracelet. The bracelet controls effects like reverb, echo, and tempo while sensors in the glove detect pressure. By tapping your fingers and palm against a table, wall, or even your leg, you can build a melody from scratch using sounds you hand-picked yourself.
"You can program an 'A' chord from a heavy metal guitar on your thumb and a sample line from Daft Punk’s 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger; on your pinky," the description reads on the product's Kickstarter page. "Touch these two together and they’ll play simultaneously, or play them separately for isolated tracks."
After downloading the T8's companion app onto a phone or tablet, users can program the glove with the notes, sounds, and samples of their choice. The app also includes recording software, so any masterpieces created on-the-fly won't be lost. While the wearable instrument makes for a convenient song-writing tool anywhere you go, it can also be used in live performances. In the video below, you can watch the Remidi T8 being used during a DJ set.

Remidi is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, where they've already raised around $124,000 of their initial $50,000 goal. Backers have until the end of the week to reserve a musical glove of their own with a pledge of $229.
