Body Movement to Create Music
When I was in high school I dreamed of being able to make music with my tap shoes instead of just rhythm. I had envisioned a board that I could dance on with microphones and a computer to translate into music. Now, many people have done this with FSR’s and I really want to try!

The most amazing thing–
Micro Movements- Can we use them to control our devices?
I am interested in finding ways to input to our computers or other devices without touching them or speaking to them. I know that the brain wave control is coming- but I wonder if there is a mid step that we can accomplish right now? I would like to be able to wiggle my fingers to type, but without the keyboard beneath them. (Probably too far fetched for this project, but I would like to look into a simple version.)

I could look at collecting data from fitbits or other sensors to make a game- The contestants would compete to make their sensor higher. There could be advantages for being short tall, small big etc- that wouldn’t be apparent until they figure it out.
