My microtonal Arduino MIDI instrument!

Haptolin is my Arduino-based, microtonal instrument/MIDI controller. The project is mainly inspired by:

Haptx Glove
Power Glove

Haptolin produces a theremin-like sound while providing an analog haptic feedback allowing for a precise pitch control. Whereas Haptx glove relies on complex, actuator-based feedback system, haptolin uses simple braided elastic bands. The higher the pitch the stronger the response. The left key controls the pitch, the right one controls the dynamics.

Unlike most of the microtonal MIDI instruments, Haptolin uses native MIDI and implements the microtonality through pitch shifts in between the notes. Thanks to this solution Haptolin is compatible with most of the MIDI synthesizers without any drivers needed.”
