Mogees Turns Just About Anything Into An Instrument


Finding yourself always tapping away on surfaces, creating a beat from stuff that wasn’t meant to be musical? Well then, Mogees is just for you. It’s a special vibration sensor that attaches to anything, and allows you to map different vibration patterns to different instruments. This way you can turn your living space into a whole percussion set. You first have to program the app and tell it which vibrations correspond to which instrument (eg. tapping with open palms on a door could be the snare drum, using the knuckles could be the high hat, and hitting it with a key could be the kick drum), it’ll then recognize the vibrations and communicate the signal to your phone, which in turn emits the corresponding sound. Imagine sitting at your desk at work and kicking out a whole drum set by tapping on your drawers, your stapler or anything else that comes to mind. It sounds ridiculous, but you really have to watch the video to see the potential.

It’s not limited to drum sounds, incidentally. Mogee outputs MIDI signals, so you can map just about any instrument to your vibrations and get creative. It’s a fully-funded Kickstarter, and a £96 ($147) pledge will get you one with delivery in November!

Floating Record Spins Your Vinyls Vertically


The joke is getting old: kids won’t know what this is. I think it’s fair to say that it’s been made long enough that kids know what vinyl records, at least as the subject of a very lame joke. So we won’t make it… but we’ll use it as a segue to introduce the Floating Records Vertical Turntable anyway. Those of you who bother to have records probably feel very protective and fond of them, so you ought to get yourself a turntable that lives up to the quality of your affections.

An all-in-one solution, it features built-in, full-range stereo speakers, so it’s easy to get up and running. It uses an Audio-Technica AT95E cartridge mounted on a fully-adjustable carbon fiber tone arm, a DC manual belt-drive system to spin both 33s and 45s, and a high-mass acrylic plinth and platter. It has a headphone jack for private listening, and RCA outs with a built-in preamp in case you want to integrate it into your existing system. Assembled by hand in Chicago.

It’s a striking device, and it comes at a relatively reasonable price of $349. This is a pledge to the Kickstarter campaign, so you will unfortunately have to wait until December to get your shipment.

WristBoom Is A Bluetooth Speaker You Wear On Your Wrist


So… this exists. It’s a Bluetooth speaker, and it sits on your wrist. You can either stream music to it, or take calls. But you can’t make any because there’s only one button, and all it does is turn the device on and off, and accept incoming calls. It’s big. It’s bulky. And you’d be right in asking who in their right mind would ever want one. But Chris Davies from Slashgear makes a good point: what about grandmothers? We like to evaluate products from our own standpoints where a big, bulky boombox-on-a-wrist is stupid, but for someone with limited mobility, for whom the phone that’s ringing in the adjacent room is probably too long a trek to bother with, well, it makes a little more sense. Considering it’s $20, and probably easier to use than a pair of scissors, the WristBoom seems like just the kind of thing you’d get for someone like grandma. That’s of course if it ever does see the light of day, which seems unlikely considering their crowdfunding campaign appears dead in the water for now. Still, there are 10 days left, and you never know what can happen in that span of time.

Pocket Operators Are Pocket-Sized Synthesizers For Mobile Djs


Cheap-Monday-Pocket-Operators-Micro-Synthesizers We’ll admit we don’t know much about synthesizers, but we like the idea that a product seemingly as small as this could allow someone to make electronic music on the go. About the size of an iPhone 6, the Pocket Operators come in three flavours: ” the “Rhythm” operator is a drum machine, the “Sub” is a base line synthesizer, & the “Factory” provides a selection of melodies.”

The SUB is a bass line driven synthesizer. It’s got a 16 step sequencer with 16 sounds and 16 effects/playing styles.

Type: Pocket bass line synthesizer and sequencer

Key features:
– Real synthesizer engines
– Sequencer
– Parameter locks
– 16 punch-in effects
– 16 punch-in styles
– Built-in speaker

– LCD display
– Folding stand
– Watch + alarm clock
– L 10,5 cm x W 6 cm

All Pocket Operators can be sync to each other or to external gear.

That’s the description for the SUB Pocket Operator, but features are similar for all. They cost all of £49, which is about $74USD.

Tuna Knobs For The Tablet DJ


It used to be that DJs would do their work on a physical mixer, with actual dials, knobs and buttons. Now you can have all that jazz right on your tablet, and the convenience has caused tons of DJs to flock to the new medium. But for those of you still longing for a bit of physical feedback, the Tuna Knobs can be placed directly on your touchscreen and will give your music-making somewhat more of a natural feel. They work just like a stylus, and can be removed when you’re done playing your set. They’re relatively cheap, at €22 (about $25) for a pair, or $67 for 6 and a travel case.
