JUKE Cylinder: A Device to Metamorphose Hands to a Musical Instrument

Los Angeles Convention Center, Concourse Foyer

JUKE Cylinder is a cylindrical interactive device that metamorphoses hands to a musical instrument by localizing the sound image on the hands and enables users to control the pitches of the sound. Users create and control the sounds of real musical instruments (guitar, piano, flute, etc.) with their hands. They perceive that the sounds originate from interactions or objects that would not normally produce audio output.
