Phonotonic: Play Music Like A Footballer

“Kickstarter Pitch: Phonotonic”

TechCrunch checked out Phonotonic at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES):

“A startup that makes nifty orbs that translate your dance moves into beats…Basically, sensors inside each orb send movement data to an app on your phone that generates different music based on how you swing your arms.”

“You can use the app with just one orb, but with two you can generate the melody with one and the rhythm with the other.”

Phonotonic gets a full demo in the above video that was created for their successful Kickstarter campaign.

Below you can see a footballer in action with one of the “orbs.”
