Mictic is a wearable wristband that can translate your gestures and movements and turn them into musical tones and sound effects in real-time. Mictic has started a Kickstarter campaign.

“We’re coming to change your relationship to music. Mictic is the Swiss-made XR wearable that turns your movements into sound. It doesn’t matter if you already have a Grammy or have never picked up a musical instrument, with Mictic you’ll be expressing yourself the minute you put the wristbands on and connect via Bluetooth,” Mictic says.

Mictic claims to be the first wearable device that is a true musical instrument and not just a controller for Midi or other interfaces. The wristbands translate your arm movements into included instrument sounds like electric guitar, drums, cello, and genre-based soundscapes like EDM and hip-hop. We have pending patent applications capturing this technology.

How does it work?

The wristbands contain sensors that detect movement and motion with supreme precision and accuracy.   You can connect the sensors with your smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

  • Strap Mictic to your wrists
  • Connect your smartphone via Bluetooth

Who is this for?

You don’t have to be a musician to use Mictic. The wearable device is easy to use and can be used by anyone. “Our mission is to give everyone the power to express themselves no matter what kind of music they enjoy, and whether they are already Grammy-winners, or have had no training at all. Mictic can be used for any age range and you really don’t have to be a musician to enjoy it,” Mictic said.
