There’s a really cool Wired Talk where Imogen Heap demonstrates the ability to control music through movement, with the help of motion control gloves and a lot of tech. Auug has created a similar, more cost friendly app and peripheral that use the sensors in your phone to replicate this awesome technology. With the Motion Synth you can not only play any notes from a musical scale, but also raise/lower the scale with the use of hand gestures. The Auug Grip holds your phone and allows you to hit the eight buttons with ease. You can program sounds in like any synthesizer and add voice effects for those like myself that love to sing, but sound like garbage. Augg is currently only compatible with your iPhone or iPod touch due to the shape of the grip (sorry Android users). Pledge $68 at
