Daito Manabe is a new media artist and musician. This is one of the first projects that got me interested in electronic art, especially coming from a musical background.

This particular project uses sensors that pickup electric activity in muscles, he is then using that to trigger and control sound synthesis parameters.

The Arcus ring is pretty awesome in that it does not only apply its technology to health and fitness, although it does market those features considering they’re the biggest reason people buy wearable tech.

It’s water proof and it can be connected via Bluetooth to any device that supports it. How applicable!
