This Creepy Exoskeleton Adds Music To Your Every Movement

It sounds cruel, but traditional dancers are little more than highly trained puppets. Even after countless hours of training, it’s ultimately up to the directors, choreographers, and musicians to dictate their movements and shape the vision of the performance. But Audfit, developed by Marta Romaszkan, Krystian Klimowski, and Patryk Lichota, changes that.

It’s a musical exoskeleton—an instrument built into a costume—that by tracking nine points of a dancer’s body, produces music in perfect harmony with their movement. Interestingly, the stage is silent, and the audience listens in through headphones, with the option of selecting the electronic instrumentation they hear.
