PENO / pen


Music is loved by many people around the world.However,not everyone is master of the piano and the stave.PENO,therefore,is designed to provide an easy access to creating music for music lovers.As you draw a line ,the sensors inside this pen can capture the data of the speed,direction and pressure of the nib in real time.Then,the microcomputer inside will process the data,generate the musical note,and instantly the speaker inside will play it.In this way,a piece of music can be composed as the curve goes.Also you can connect the pen through Bluetooth with external speakers to enjoy your composition,or with your phone,to record your music.
