Form Exploration

We explored diverse forms for the device but leaned towards integrating it with the music stand since that is where the musician’s attention will primarily be. 

Prototyping Light & Gesture 

To prototype the light, we used a Leap Motion Controller connected to an Arduino. We created a low fidelity prototype to recognize up and down, left to right gestural inputs which then correlate to brightness/intensity and color change. We decided that crescendo/decrescendo (an up/down conductor gesture) would correlate to light intensity.
