Mution is an experimental music device using an innovative user interface. Rather than the typical combination of buttons, remote controls and graphical displays, mution uses a video camera pointing at symbols on the wall and motion detection to control the playing of music.

Feedback is provided to the user with sound and, where appropriate, speech synthesis. The user-interface on the wall allows basic control of the music. More comprehensive controls and set-up of mution are accessed through a web-based interface served from the device.

The advantages of this innovative user-interface are numerous:
– As the controls are remote from the electrical components it is a safe solution for public spaces, or where electronics would normally be susceptible to damage from water, children, vandals etc.
– The user can design their own user-interface and position it anywhere
– It’s fun!

Mution is still being developed and isn’t comecrially available.

The cebop POP Blowup-speakers are the only sound system that use an inflatable form to produce sound. The Inflatable Speakers can be used with: PC’s, Mac’s, Personal CD Players, Personal stereos, and make a refreshing change to a boring black speaker lurking in the corner…

In contrast to traditional speakers which rely on the motion of a diaphragm, the cebop POP Blowup-speakers use an NXT Exciter which can generate sound waves across the entire surface of a material. The sound produced is high quality and multi-directional, another advantage on the diaphragm system – true surround sound.

When inflated, the satellite speakers stand 260 mm high. Deflated these speakers are perfect for a backpack, briefcase or beach bag. The sound quality is better than conventional portable speakers, which don’t allow for much range and have a hollow, “tinny” sound. The plastic skin works as a resonating surface, allowing a richer and wider range of sound with more bass.

– Power and volume control, magnetically shielded
– Frequency response: 50 Hz bis 20 KHz, input sensitivity: 350 m
