Imogen Heap's musical gloves

Gear | Projects
"Aa video interview with Imogen Heap describing her homemade electronic interface gloves that control her music interface software by the movement and positions of her hands"  Heap’s Kickstarter campaign aims to raise £200,000 to develop and produce a limited production run of Mi.Mu gloves.
"What this glove enables me to do is access mappings inside my computer so that I don’t have to go to a keyboard or a fader or a button," she says.
For example, instead of using a finger to push a fader on a mixing desk, Heap can raise her arm to achieve the same affect. By raising her hand, she can move through a scale of notes, or through pinching together her thumb, middle and forefinger and rotating it, she can apply filters to the sound.
Each gesture-control glove contains a wifi-enabled x-IMU board developed by x-IO Technologies containing an accelerometer, a magnetometer and a gyroscope.
These work together with a series of motion sensors incorporated into the fingers of each glove that track the degree of bend and the spread of the fingers. The gloves can also understand postures such as an open palm, a finger-point or a closed fist."

Wine Packaged in a Paint Bucket
Gear | Design
It’s wine packaged in a paint bucket – a design concept by Lithuania-based ad agency, McCann Vilnius for Beaujolais Nouveau, a batch of new red wines produced annually by the Beaujolais region of France. The premise of the paint bucket design is that wine does more than intoxicate. It also, like paint, colors the lips and teeth of the consumer. The back of the bucket provides a color chart, letting the drinker know how many glasses of wine it might take to “paint” your teeth various shades of purple. Cool design.
