Simple. Stylish. Silly.
Envisioning a new definition for
what is a musical instrument, Banggos let you play to your heart's
content in any way that you wish! It's about finding your own style. Jam
with friends at music sessions, break out those new dance moves, party
it up and more!

The Banggos project began with composer/artist kaoringMachine when he
uploaded his idea to YouTube and the video went viral the next day. The
idea became the prototype for the wearable musical instrument.

Banggos comes in two different sensor types. One is
a soft touch sensor that sends vibrations from taps directly to the
crotch area. The other is in a simple push-button style that enables
quality performance.

Banggos has a 3.5mm audio jack and is compatible with WiFi, MIDI, touch
sensor, and speaker devices. Audio can be played through the Banggos iOS
App (4 types of sound), the Banggos device (4 types of sound), or DAW
software (AbletonLive, Max for Live, Max) as midi out.

The Banggos device fits in the Banggos Pocket located at the crotch of
the pants. Both trousers and shorts have an adjustable drawstring, belt
loops, and an elastic waistband and ankle cuffs. Flexible twill fabric
made of rayon and stretchy material is made to move in easily and can be
worn over regular pants.

The initial funding goal of the Kickstarter is
$5,000, with the campaign running for 30 days from July 13, 2017 JST to
August 11, 2017 JST.
