Motus – Creative Motion Enhancer

An exciting and simple way to explore and play sound through your motion. Can be used as a creative tool by musicians, dancers and artists, as well it is an intelligent toy for kids and grown-ups.

Bash an imaginary drum set to within an inch of its life, key a grand concert piano while walking around the stage or play an invisible violin.
The Motus is designed around current electronic technologies, though, which allows it to be very affordable.
Imagine a MIDI controller that fits in the palm of your hand that converts gesture and movement into MIDI/OSC and ultimately sound.

Created for Everyone

It is super easy to use, you don't have to be a musician or to have a degree in composition or music technology. Just turn on the device, load up our software and you're ready. Motus can reinforce your grandpa's creative energy and as well as yours. You may ask what if I'm musician? Check out Motus page for musicians.
