Every morning on my way to work, there would be this part of the journey where the jam would hog up a significant portion of my morning routine. What do I do? I would instinctively turn up the volume and start tapping on my steering wheel, beating away with the rhythmic stereos. This new invention has unprecedentedly caught my attention as I browse through Mashable’s articles today. The device actually allows you to generate music by tapping like what I did. So now, my daily routine has just made me a musician. Neat isn’t it? The device allows users to place a sensor which apparently looks like a circular round detector, on any surface to detect vibrations, forming nice rhythmic tunes. Exciting stuff in my opinion. Of course, you can then plug this device into your mobile headphone jack and enjoy the music you created. Mogees, as the device is called, is created by Bruno Zamborlin, a British musician with dance group Plaid. Check out more of their stuffs from the video and from Mashable’s article here.

“I have done several workshops in primary schools in the UK, using Mogees to teach key aspects of sound and music in the national curriculum, and the results have been terrific,” Zamborlin told Mashable. “Kids really learned concepts about vibrations and acoustic properties of materials in a brand new, interactive and natural way. Mogees is not just an instrument for musicians — it’s a tool for music discovery that everyone should have fun in using.”
