The MINI·MU is a make-it-yourself gesture-sensing musical glove for children, based around the BBC microbit. I was the lead dev on this project for Imogen Heap, Pimoroni and the MI·MU glove team. We wanted to create a friendly, simple and fun crafty coding experience for young kids.
It was my first proper product (in a box!! with a barcode!!) so it was a huge learning experience for me as a maker. I made the first version of this glove in a shared makerspace in Hackney, and six months later it became a real product sold on Pimoroni and Adafruit.
Enjoy this project?
