Wearable Vibrating Metronome

Wearable Vibrating Metronome

Soundbrenner Pulse is a wearable device designed specifically for musicians, which acts as a vibrational metronome to help them keep the beat.

Developed by a team of entrepreneurial musicians in Berlin, the stylish musical aid is worn on the arm or leg. It delivers subtle and precise vibrations using advanced technology that provides haptic feedback up to six times stronger than the vibrational alerts commonly found in smartphones.

The wearable device measures slightly larger than a sports watch, and enables solo musicians or those in a group to follow a beat without the intrusiveness of an audible metronome. It is Bluetooth-enabled and can be paired with an accompanying Soundbrenner smartphone app to offer multi-player synchronization, a customizable Smart Music Coach, rhythm exercises, and more.

If the musician would also like to see a visual representation of the beat, there are LED lights around the face of Soundbrenner Pulse, which can be turned on to blink in sync with the vibrational beat and customized to glow in any color.

Soundbrenner’s unique BPM (beats per minute) Tap feature enables musicians to simply tap their desired tempo onto the face of the device. This activates a capacitive touch sensor, capturing the tempo while a proprietary algorithm translates the tap into haptic feedback in the form of precise vibrations. Musicians can also rotate the BPM Wheel surrounding the device’s face or use the Soundbrenner app in order to decrease or increase the number of beats.
