Chet Udell Seeks Funding Support via Kickstarter to Launch eMersion Gesture Control System for Music Performance & More

A smart technology that allows an instrument to transform movement, orientation and momentum into audio & visual effects.


Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2014 -- When performing, either live or in a recording environment, performers are limited by the technology around them. Their performance is less about feeling the music and connecting with their audience and more about the narrow parameters of technology. Whether they are limited by a traditional instrument, tired of being tied down to tons of wired equipment or just looking for a new fluid and intuitive way to play, eMotion has a solution.

Chet Udell and team has created a simple unique device to let performers and their performance not be limited by anything but their imagination and artistic vigor. The eMersion™ is a gesture control technology that unobtrusively attaches to an instrument and lets users control the desired audio effect instantly with a quick flick of the wrist or other sensor driven gestures.

The eMersion comes with a patent-pending combination of hardware and software that wirelessly allow musicians to augment their live performance through gesture control technology. Included in the base system is the software, a charging receiver hub that connects to a computer through USB, and the eMote Twist. The notable tech here is the Twist, which is a compact combination of a 3-axis gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer to control inertia, acceleration and position.

The project team needs help to develop a sleek, sexy enclosure to protect their eMersion system. They also need help launching their community and the next round of production.

This project will only be funded if at least$7,500 is pledged by Sun, Apr 20 2014 8:06 AM +05:30.
