Abstract

This project is an initial investigation into the use of wearable electronics for wireless gesture detection, with the end goal of an application of augmenting dance performance through the use of gesture controlled sound. Though the system developed is not as yet of practical use to a dance performer, it lays the groundwork for future development and expansion, in both hardware and software design. In particular, it provides an in-depth overview of the lessons learned regarding the special hardware development considerations in wearable electronics to help ensure the success of future developments.
