Dylan Menzies O-bow featured in 'Wired', 'New Scientist', and more…

Following a demonstration and paper by MTIRC's Dylan Menzies at the Tangible Embedded Interaction conference in Barcelona, New Scientist magazine ran a feature on his O-Bow technology. The story rapidly spread to Wired, Gizmodo, The Daily Mail, and other news outlets.

The O-Bow is an electronic musical instrument consisting a bow sensor and synthesis software. An optical flow sensor is used to measure the bow speed and horizontal angle with high resolution. A variety of bow types can be tracked, including violin bows and wooden sticks.
