The BOM : Music and Haptic Design w/ Fred Kelly


In this episode of the Bom: Engineering A Path Forward we’re back at mHub in Chicago looking at how music technology is more than synths and software. It’s everything from basic controllers that play a single sound to full haptic feedback setups that in recent times have been used to create an interactive playground to help children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Today, we’re talking to one of the product design engineers Fred Kelly from Heath Interactive about this impressive feat. Fred Kelly has been working on the musical playground for the past few years and they are going to tell us about the process of building this area and why advancing music technology is so important for accessibility.
