VJacket is a wearable controller for live performances


There are a lot of cool jackets in the world, but only one will control your entire multimedia live performance. The Vjacket does just that. The Vjacket allows you to send OpenSoundControl or MIDI messages wireless to the VJ program of your choice, letting you control video effects and transitions, trigger clips and scratch frames all from the comfort of your own jacket.

The jacket was created by Tyler Freeman and Andreas Zingerle, who embedded the jacket with 5 sensors. The 1 Softpot, 2 piezos, 2 bend sensors and 1 photo resistor combine to give you a rough and tumble live performance controlling machine. Oh yeah, it’s also a jacket.

It’s not available for sale yet, but you can watch a video of the Vjacket in action right here.
