imogen heap's magic hands

This looks like good fun. Imogen Heap has a Kickstarter campaign underway for the funding of her rather excellent musical 'Mi.Mu' gloves. No need for musical training here the gloves work by movement and flex or gesture of the hand, a bit like a super theremin.
Here's Imogen demonstrating the operation at her home/studio. Very nice thank you.

And below that Imogen at her day job singing "Rollin' And Tumblin'" with the equally magic hands of Jeff Beck who doesn't really need such devices when creating sonic sounds. From the explosive 2001 Beck album 'You've Had It Coming'
