Whether you tap it, twist it or squeeze it, the sensor living at the heart of Skoog detects how you squeeze and activate the foam. It’s not just sensitive to how hard the Skoog is being touched, but where and how it is being touched, transforming the things you do into meaningful and expressive sounds. Adjustable sensitivity means that you can play Skoog intuitively with any part of your body: hands, elbows, knees or head.
Whatever your skills, abilities, and musical talents, the universal design enables accessible, expressive music making for children, parents, teachers, musicians and families.
- Connects wirelessly to iPad using the Skoog app (free from the App Store on iTunes) and Bluetooth
- Adjustable sensitivity
- Tactile orientation marker helps those with visual impairments to navigate Skoog interface
- Built-in guide access mode to hide on-screen menus and enable users to focus on playing
Requires iOS 7 or later, or Mac OS X v10.6 or later.
