Mi.mu is a non-profit startup comprising a highly skilled team of musicians, artists, scientists and technologists developing cutting-edge wearable technology for the performance and composition of music. Our musical glove system represents a truly elegant fusion of traditional textiles with advanced motion tracking electronics and algorithms. Combined with dedicated gesture detection and mapping software, the Mi.Mu gloves offer a new and flexible approach to the control of music and visuals with intuitive human movement. Users experience a dramatic shift in their perceptions of music performance and composition as the technology fades away and what used to be a barrier to entry becomes an enabler of creative freedom.
Our aim for the mi.mu glove system is to contribute substantially to the thriving community of makers, musicians, hackers and anyone interested in changing how people interact with creative arts technology. Although our primary focus is music, the mi.mu gloves have unlimited potential outside of this domain. Artists, engineers and scientists from a range of fields began signalling their interests when Imogen Heap, our founding director, first demonstrated the gloves at a number of international technology conferences including TED Global and Wired 2012. Inspired by this reaction the mi.mu team is now working hard to make this technology available to the public at artist friendly prices!
