The Instrument 1 music controller is definitely not the usual kind instrument that you see in the music store. It features ergonomic hardwood body that allows you to play it in 5 different positions while the virtual string interface has great sensitivity and responsiveness. It’s safe to say that this is the first serious instrument for a professional mobile musician.
Placed in multi-instrument category, this device emits variety of sound and can be played in different positions, unlike most standard instrument which can only be held on one way. You can play it like a guitar using the sling strap over your neck, or place it under your chin like a violin, or prop it upright your knee for cello technique. It’s a portable music studio that offers professional-level performance. One minor problem is that this music controller is only compatible with iPhone 5/5s, so Android users will have to wait until the company releases universal version.
Artiphon Instrument 1 is hand built in Nashville, TN where it’s body carved of sustainably harvested hardwood and bamboo by Cumberland Architectural Millwork. It has patent-pending fretboard interface with 6 virtual strings, 6 virtual frets, and full fretless playability. The onboard connections are for headphones, USB, ¼” stereo instrument cable, and MIDI I/O. Each one is equipped with high-fidelity stereo BMR speakers (100Hz–20kHz) and a 25-Watt, Class-D amplifier built-in. There’s an iOS app that you can use to control any CORE MIDI with multi-track recording capabilities.
Anesthesia is a serious procedure that usually leads to unpleasant experience, it requires staff to be professional and parents should be brave. The basic procedure is the same for all patients regardless their age. Adults might find it unpleasant but to children, this experience might be traumatic. Anesthesia can be performed in 2 ways: injection or gas. ANNA is a concept breathing assistant for sedation, unlike gas mask that might terrify children, this concept takes fun approach to encourage children to actually play with it.
ANNA offers a great solution for this situation, it shows children how to breathe and assist them to optimally inhale and exhale slower and deeper. This practice not only calms user down but also speeds up the sedation process. This medical equipment prepares children for the procedure by practicing breathing process before the operation at home or in the preparation room. ANNA uses light movement and sounds to communicate with the user, it’s easy to understand regardless of age or language skills. In this way, children would become familiar with the mask breathing technique before the actual sedation procedure begins.
