As much as I can’t stand Ariana Grande’s music, the music production geek in me is absolutely mesmerized by this video. Developed by Imogen Heap, the Mi.Mu are a futuristic, sci-fi way of making music using just the motion of your hands. Really it’s an effects/midi controller (which is nothing new) that operates on the same musical principle of a theremin (also nothing new). Still, it’s a very neat electronic way of added performance effects to tunes.

Ariana Grande took the gloves for a spin, using them to add insane reverb/chorus effects while singing into a mic/vocal processor. It’s pretty freakin’ cool.
