Pebblin': a musical smartwatch experience
WINNER: Philips Hue Prize
Pebblin' is an "air violin" developed on a Pebble smartwatch and an Android smartphone. Here, the Pebble acts as the "bow" for the violin, while the phone acts as a "fret". The angle of the watch and which button is pressed on the companion phone app determine the pitch that is produced, while the speed of the watch determines the volume.
We also have a HUE-enabled tutorial culminating in a lightshow accompaniment, teaching you the finger positions and bow angles needed for success. To preserve your Pebblin' compositions, we integrate with the SendGrid API to create snapshots of your most recent tunes, emailed to you right from inside the app.
As an extra bonus, we've included some other fun sounds, including brass, piano, drums, woodwinds, and a full orchestra.
