With the advancement of technology, we now have different types of gadgets that we probably could not have imagined a few years ago. However, we now have smartwatches through which we can control our smartphones, but have you ever imagined that you can control musical instruments with your hands without touching them.
Yes, in 2020, it is possible because of “wearable technology,” and GripBeats is the fruitful outcome of it. GripBeats comes with rotational strap design, and therefore it looks like a bracelet. After wearing this, you have to connect it with your smartphones through Bluetooth and you are done. Now, you can control any musical instrument just by waving your hands in the air. GripBeats is the future of the music industry, and therefore, it cannot be explained using few words. We have done complete research on it and added the key features of it below.
