The trend of gadgets that rethink how we make music continues to surprise us! Music Fingers is a new device that literally puts music at your fingertips — letting us tap out beats on any surface.

Music Fingers is a clip-like device to put on your finger, sort of like a pulse reader but cooler! It is super simple to use. The clip connects to the Music Fingers App on your smartphone via Bluetooth, where sounds or loops can be assigned to the clip’s two buttons. Once that’s done, you can start playing by tapping anywhere.
Music Fingers is just one example of a weird and fund gadget engineered to make beats and sounds. Throughout the last years, there has been a lot of attempts at making these kinds of devices. For instance, Oddball, which is an actual bouncy ball that’s also a drum machine, multiple glove-like devices turn your hands into instruments, and Orba a synth, looper, and controller.
Physical, gesture-based gadgets for music-making come in various sizes, forms, and qualities. Nonetheless, none of these devices has been around long enough for the industry to sort out which ones will stick.
If tapping away with a pair of Music Fingers sounds like a fun way to turn yourself into a human drum machine, they can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter starting at ($70).
