Yesterday’s post on the soundboard jacket was absolute bliss for me. To think that my clothes could make music is both fun and exciting! And just in time for the party, I’ve been made aware of a pair of musical gloves called Mi.Mu. Imogen Heap, English singer/songwriter/composer/musician is the voice behind a non-profit organization that consists of artists, scientists and technologists who have created these music-making gloves.  Sensors and wiring embedded in the fabric allow for a pair of Mi.Mu’s to interact with keyboards and other musical equipment without actually touching them. A wave of the hand, a pinch of the fingers and other hand gestures directly affects the music being created in real-time. Currently, the Mi.Mu project is raising funds to bring these gloves into a limited run.
