SoMo is a discreet wearable device that generates real-time sound through body movement. Wearing SoMo is a playful, interactive experience that inspires creative movement. It’s easy to wear, simple to use and can be applied within the fields of education, physical therapy and the performing arts. We worked closely with dancers and choreographers from Ballet Jorgen and The Studio for Movement to develop the device with the goal of making SoMo easy to wear and the software interface simple to use. Our research included experiments with accelerometers and pressure sensors embedded in the dancers’ footwear.
