01 air drum

Drummers have a hard time sitting around the campfire. While their band colleagues show off their skills, they are probably playing the spoons. Air drum is a fully working prototype. An accelerometer was used to track the hits and infrared LEDs and a normal webcam to track the position of the sticks. Real time information controls were realized in vvvv. The device can be used to controll all kinds of MIDI sounds while being out on the street. Today every smartphone has all the technical specifications necessary to make the dream come true.
