Here’s another Kickstarter that can turn everyday objects into musical instruments. Mogees looks like a cross between the Ototo Kickstarter and Impaktor (on steroids).

There are four sensor inputs which control the different elements of the sound, one each for pitch and loudness and two that control the texture of the sound. You can connect different type of sensors to the […]
