now isn't this sweet

The folks who run "ensemble", an electronic music workshop for children, have created several garments and accessories with simple sensors. There's a hat that senses its position, a bag that senses light and darkness, suspenders that sense when they're being stretched, suits that sense their distance from each other, umbrellas that sense pressure, and skirts that sense acceleration.

As the kids play dress up, their movements and actions modify sounds and allow them to physically explore the music they create.
