Jörg Piringer‘s speakingObject vocal synthesizer uses accelerometer control to create some very interesting sounds –

during my 11 days at STEIM i did a working prototype of the second incarnation of the “speakingObject” (no better title still). it’s basically a vocal synthesizer controlled by two buttons and a three axis accelerometer. it works without a computer. the two wires are just power and sound out. the finished object will work on batteries and include an amp plus speaker so there will be no wires at all.

Can’t wait to see the finished version! – speakingObject on YouTube
