Sensor Transforms Anything Into A Musical Instrument

Posted October 12, 2015

Mogees is a sensor that transforms anything into a musical instrument. You can attach it to the object and play. The sensor captures every vibration you create as you play any object to which it is attached.

You can create your own bespoke instrument or MIDI controller using a gesture recognition technology, by recording a few examples of taps and associating each of these with a different sound or MIDI note.


Your gestures can trigger different MIDI notes and control any synth or effect. Control a reverb effect by hitting the side of a drum.


The app is compatible with any device running iOS 8 or later including iPhone 4S and above or iPad 2 and above.
