    My team and I are working on a supa cool visual & musical project called the Wavo, as a big fan of this community, I really had to share it:­­­­

    Wavo was born in a hackathon (­), we actually won it!
    Now we’re bringing the product to reality with the help of the awesome mentors they provide us (engineering, design, law, media, video).

    Wavo is a tangible controller that sends bluetooth (BLE) commands to a computer/smart device to play & visualize music. It aims towards getting younger kids into art/music exploration, but it's really fun to play with it and to hack it ;p

    We're looking for an enthusiastic Web App Developer to work with us as a co-founder. Most of us have jobs so we're hoping for someone independent who shares our passion about interaction, music & visual arts.

    We're not crowdfunding before the end of the year, but don't wait, contact us and let's hack together!

    hello (a)

    Spread the word ;)
