Skills:  creativity, rapid prototyping, video editing, music production

Date: August 2017

Tools: Apple Garageband, iMovie, pen & paper 


As part of my Interaction Design Specialization at UCSD, I designed an Apple Watch interface for Apple’s music production software, Garageband. This quick and fun interactive prototype shows how the user can use their watch to compose music and interact with virtual instruments. The app uses Apple Watch’s accelerometer and gyroscope to detect the motions of the user.

Critics are saying:

“Hand Band is the air guitar of the 21st century”
