This is a talk about augmented musical instruments, which use digital technology to extend the creative possibilities of familiar musical instruments. Augmented instruments build on centuries-old designs like the piano and violin, but they also use electronic sensors, actuators and computers to transform and enhance the sound of the instrument as it is played. For example, we could build a piano which can sustain forever and play vibratos and pitch bends like a violin, or we could make an electronic violin that always stays in tune no matter where you place your fingers.
