Music from the rings: a new technology for creating melodies

Wear-resistant rings called Specdrums, which can be connected to a smartphone will allow you to create music by tapping on surrounding objects.

According to, rings can identify various colors as various sounds, so you can work with almost all things around: from furniture to clothes.

The new application can work with both Android and iOS devices and connects up to 10 rings at the same time. When using the rings, you can select the kinds of things the rings are interacting with when they come into contact with the object and offer options for the instruments: keys, drums, sound effects, or their own recordings. Certain sounds can be tuned to match particular colors, while rings can also be paired with other music-making applications.

One ring costs $34, two – $74.
