Whether you tap it, twist it or squeeze it, the sensor living at the heart of Skoog detects how you squeeze and activate the foam. It’s not just sensitive to how hard the Skoog is being touched, but where and how it is being touched, transforming the things you do into meaningful and expressive sounds. Adjustable sensitivity means that you can play Skoog intuitively with any part of your body: hands, elbows, knees or head.
Whatever your skills, abilities, and musical talents, the universal design enables accessible, expressive music making for children, parents, teachers,
Whatever your skills, abilities or musical talents, Skoog’s universal design enables fun, accessible, expressive music-making for children, parents, teachers, musicians and families, including those with disabilities.
How Does it Work?
Skoog is designed to get you ‘hands-on’ with musical sounds. It’s like a games controller for making music – it’s a squashy foam cube that acts as a wireless (Bluetooth® SMART) controller for the app running on your iPad. Simply touch to play.
Play along with the music you love! The Skoog App works with your iTunes library, GarageBand or music streaming service and automatically tunes your Skoog. Just choose a song and get playing. Creative and fun, with Skoog you play to learn: that’s what musicplay is all about.
Skoog is a fun way for families to explore sound and music together with the kids and grandparents, with no need to master complicated music theory or playing techniques.
