Meet The World’s Smallest Violin

Many of us love violin whether we talk about playing it or hearing its music. Let us introduce you to the smallest violin in the world that is infact a comedy gag. Rub your fingers over it, and it will generate a violin music that is sarcastically sad.

This is a new technology by Google that lets you play violin with your finger tips instead of the violin stick. The design I/O and the coding has resulted in a program that produces sad violin sound whenever it detects the motion of rubbing fingertips over its sensor pad. See the video below!

This program by Google is an extension of Project Soli, a small radar-based sensor that can register movements almost accurately. This is the technology that lets the device detect only the motion of two fingers rubbing together to trigger slow violin music. This isn’t exactly a miniature violin, but it seems and sounds like one though.

It’s only setback, for now, is that you cannot take it with you anywhere because it needs a power connection to work. Smart engineers who can teach a sensor to detect precise movements might also make it possible to take this device anywhere.

A fancy wearable, perhaps? What do you say?
